You might check on the char sets loaded on the SQL server.
(select name from master..syscharsets).

By default, only the iso_1 charset (typically used by unix
clients) is loaded on Sybase install via sybinit.  You may 
use sybinit to make other charsets available, such as cp850 
which is the character set Win NT (maybe Win 3.x also, i'm 
not sure) programs typically use to display extended 
characters (>127).
