      Description

      Some of the East Asian codepages, such as shift_jis, do not map U+005C
      [backslash]
      and instead map into \x5C a 'Yen' character. This is not the behavior of web
      browsers, and leaves that encoding with no way to represent a backslash.

      I'm requesting that variant codepages, with no backslash, be created and put
      into
      the ICU. It would be possible to simply modify convtrs.txt [instance|for] to
      point to these versions when they are needed.

      [ Understanding that sjis intentionally maps \x5C as Yen, however U+005C
      could be mapped to the fullwidth yen for display purposes in these variant
      codepages. ]
