Rather than build your own monocasing table why not just use the ones
supplied standard with OS/400.  Assuming your file data is in CCSID 37
then table Q037 will do key monocasing.  A few dozen tables are
provided in the system with examples being Arabic Bilingual, Farsi,
Cyrillic, Canadian French, Greek, Japanese Katakana extended, etc.
The list of tables can be found in the International Appication
Development Guide under Graphic Character Conversion Tables.
