because the b2c tables need to be updated before used to generate the 
c2b tables, if there is
a b2cNR table (means there are multiple "bytes" mapped to a single same 
"char", when do
c->b, we need to know which "bytes" to map to, this is done by specified 
that in .nr map). In
theory we need only do that if b2cNR presents, but I don't want to keep 
two paths. A possible
optimization is to pass in char[] instead of String, then only make a 
copy when necessary.
