Thanks for the explanation. Here are comments to your fix:

- Can you add some comments about the gist of the change to IBM943.c2b? 
Summarizing the explanation below would be fine.

For the test case:

- Please wrap the @bug line appropriately.

- Those byte array/Strings can be "static final" outside the test method.

- Looks like the mapping is exactly the same with IBM943C for those code 
points. Is that correct? If so, would you please add some comment as such?

- Typo: "round-tip" -> "round-trip"
