What is a JIS file?

A JIS file is a text file that contains characters encoded with Japanese Industry Standards (JIS) encoding. It may be encoded with one of several JIS coded character sets, which includes JIS X 0201, 0202, 0212, and 0213, but is most commonly encoded in the JIS X 0208 kanji character set.
