We're using an "ancient" programming language (Visual DataFlex) which is still 
in the DOS era so we need to code our files using Cp850 in order to get our 
national characters (æ/ø/å) correct. Lately we've written our own development 
tools for this language using Eclipse. Now when we compare files using the 
visual diff, we get differences wherever these national characters are 
involved. Since the Eclipse projects are set to use Cp850 my idea was to 
force the CVS server to use the same so that we don't get any differences.
