View (v.exe) seems to have Windows-1252 as hardcoded system codepage. I'm viewing some (ANSI) files that have Greek characters in them, and instead of the standard Greek (codepage 1253), I'm seeing characters from codepage 1252 (mostly vowels with diacritics). The workaround is obvious, switch to Greek (1253) encoding, but "use system codepage" is misleading, or even wrong. "Use System codepage" should use the actual system codepage, as is demonstrated by e.g. opening the same file with Notepad. Thankfully the encoding persists between sessions, so that's not so big a deal after all. Weirdly enough, the DOS/OEM code page uses the correct OEM codepage (737 for Greek). Finally, there is no Codepage 437 encoding. Instead, the only Western European DOS/OEM option is the less common Codepage 850.
