Microsoft has presumably authoritative code page listings at:
Each of these listings gives the Unicode code points that
correspond to each character value.  So, if you want to figure
out the correspondence badly enough, you could extract the info
provided by those pages and see whether any of the iconv names
convert to the same Unicode code points.  I did something like
this to find out whether the SPSS EBCDIC encoding was the same as
any iconv character set (it wasn't).
