**
**  ABSTRACT:
**
**  This file defines code sets data structure, and a routine to encode the
**  data before it is stored in NSI and a routine to decode the data after
**  the data is retrieved from NSI.
**  
**  Both server and client supports a certain set of code sets.  For 
**  the communication between client and server without a major data loss,
**  client needs to know which code sets a server supports.  NSI is used
**  to store server's supported code sets.  Since code sets are integer values,
**  they are encoded to endian-safe formats by IDL encoding services before
**  they are stored in NSI.
