Maybe codec bug in MS1252, i.e., encoding Cp1252

These 5 code points are "undefined" character in Cp1252. The first one
should be 0x81 not 0x83, since 0x83<->u_0192 is defined and works
correctly in Cp1252 charset). The mapping table you referred to is
"bestfit" type mapping table, in which it tries to provide the mapping
between the local encoding and the Unicode character set for those
characters not even exist in the local encoding. Personally I don't think
it's a good idea in most use scenario. All other official (from Microsoft)
or un-official mapping tables clearly mark these code points "undefined"
or "unused", for example
btw, code below is incorrect, or it does not work the way you might
String name1 = new String( new String("兆源").getBytes("UTF-8"), "Cp1252");
String name2 = new String( name1.getBytes("Cp1252"), "UTF-8");
new String("兆源").getBytes("UTF-8") encodes your 2 Chinese character from
UTF-16 to UTF-8 bytes. It does not makes sense to then decode these UTF-8
bytes back to UTF-16 (which the String object uses) by using Cp1252 charset.
same for the second attempt.
What did you try to achieve? decode/encode between UTF-8 bytes and CP1252
bytes? It's not going to be a round-trip conversion for those non-ASCII
