But they're not very useful.  The definitive reference is ITU T.61, but it's
no longer available (by the way, would someone please supply me a copy?  I
would cheerfully pay for it).   RFC 1345 contains the only useful definition
I've seen.

Or you can forget about T.61 if you use Netscape Directory Server, which
uses UTF-8 in LDAP v2.

Netscape, for example.  Some other LDAP implementations use other charsets
in LDAP v2.  For example, Microsoft Exchange Server uses the server's local
code page; for example, American and Western European Exchange Servers use
CP 1252 in LDAP v2.
