I know that VEDIT was offered for the DW, but I'm not certain if it was
done for the CP/M-86 version.

Looking at the disk image, while I don't see anything resembling an
ASCII-to-EBCDIC translation table, it's obvious that CP/M on the DW kept
with the ASCII representation internally.   This brings up the question
of collating sequences and what to do about EBCDIC characters that have
no corresponding ASCII representation.
