Code page 1042 (CCSID 1042), also known as Simplified Chinese PC Data Extended, is a single byte character set (SBCS) used by IBM in its PC DOS operating system in China.[1][2] This code page is intended for use with code page 928 (Simplified Chinese double byte character set).[1][3][4] It is an extension of Code page 903.

Code points 0x01 through 0x1F and x7F represent either graphic or control characters depending on the context.[1]

Code points 0x81 through 0xFC are used as lead bytes for double byte characters.[1]
