Unix charset

How can I find out the charset on a Unix server (SUNOS 5.2)? I tried locale charmap and returned 646. What does 646 mean? If I send an xml file with encoding="utf-8", should the server be able to handle the file, even with special characters in it?

wvWare - convert msword documents SYNOPSIS
wvWare [-c charset] [--charset charset] [-p password] [--password password] [-x config.xml] [--config config.xml] [-d dir] [--dir dir] filename DESCRIPTION
wvWare converts word documents into other formats such as PS,PDF,HTML,LaTeX,DVI,ABW OPTIONS -c charset, --charset charset word 97 documents are stored in one of two formats, either in 8 bit windows codepages or in 16 bit unicode. The unicode can be con- verted easily into utf-8, and the codepages are promoted to unicode and converted from there, except for the western european code- page which is always converted to iso-5589-15 if possible. This is the default behaviour. While it is possible to convert into other formats or to force a conversion to a particular format, it is not recomended as you don't get a guarantee that the output will be correct. For instance, if you convert an english document into koi8-r encoding then it will be wrong, but if you are sure then you can override the default output format. The charsets that are available depend on your system: systems using the gnu libc 2 and above can convert to just about anything; systems that at, wv configure time, prove to be inadequate for charset conversion use wv's internal conversion formats which are a small subset of the possible conversions, namely: utf-8 iso-5589-15 koi8-r tis-620 -p password, --password password Due to heroic work done by a great team of workers, the wv library can decrypt password protected word 97 and older versions of word documents given the correct password. -d dir, --dir dir If dir is used then any created graphics will be placed in this directory. The default is the directory in which the word document resides. -x config.xml, --config config.xml Use this to give the location of the config file. If not used, the config file is searched for by first checking the current direc- tory, and then by looking in the install location (/usr/local/lib/wv/wvHtml.xml by default) MORE INFORMATION
