On one Gen client/server Windows/z/OS environment the GUI client displays characters "" correctly.
However, on another environment it does not i.e.
[ is getting displayed as ¢
] is getting displayed as !

On z/OS International code page/CCSID 500 is being used rather than the usual US code page/CCSID 037.
Updated the Gen z/OS National Language user exit TIRXINFO from default US EBCDIC codepage 37 to International EBCDIC codepage 500 which has fixed the issue:
DEFCODEP DC CL8'00000500' DEFAULT CODE PAGE
TIRXINFO - National Language Information Exit
This differences page explains why the problem was being seen on the Gen GUI client
Conversion character differences between CCSID 037 and CCSID 500
0x4A is ¢ under codepage 37 and is [ under codepage 500
0x5A is ! under codepage 37 and is ] under codepage 500
So when using default codepage 37 that matches what was shown i.e. ¢ instead of [ and ! instead of ]
After the change DLLs TIRCRUNC and TIRXINFZ are rebuilt using MKCRUN and did a NEWCOPY of those 2 DLLs in CICS:
