  Czech, czech - Introduction to Czech language	support


  This reference page describes	the coded character set	(codeset), locale,
  device, font,	and other kinds	of support for the Czech language as used in
  the Czech Republic.

  Codesets for Czech

  The operating	system supports	the following codesets for Czech by means of
  locales, codeset converters, or both:

    +  ISO 8859-2 (ISO Latin 2)

       ISO8859-2 is the	string that represents this codeset in names of
       locales and codeset converters. See iso8859-2(5)	for more information.

    +  UCS-2, UCS-4, and UTF-8

       UCS-2, UCS-4, ucs4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent these
       encoding	formats	in names of locales and	codeset	converters. See
       Unicode(5) for more information.

    +  PC code pages

       cp852 and cp1250	are the	strings	that represent PC code pages in	the
       names of	codeset	converters. See	code_page(5) for more information.

  See the i18n_intro(5)	and l10n_intro(5) reference pages for introductory
  information on codesets. The iconv_intro(5) reference	page discusses
  codeset converters and how to	use them.


  The operating	system provides	the following locale for the Czech language
  and Czech Republic:

    +  cs_CZ.ISO8859-2

       This locale is also available under the name cs_CZ.ISO8859-2@ucs4 for
       applications that need to convert data from ISO8859-2 file format to
       UCS-4 process code for character	classification operations.

  You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out if	this locale
  is installed on your system. See i18n_intro(5) for information on setting

  In the Common	Desktop	Environment (CDE), you need to set locale by setting
  the session language.	To do this, use	the Language menu accessed Options
  button of the	Login window.


  The operating	system supports	the following VT style and PC style keyboards
  with Czech characters	printed	on the keys:

  VT Style (105/108 keys)   PC Style (102 keys)
  LK401-BV		    LK471-BV
  LK411-BV		    LK47W-BV
  LK461-BV		    LK97W-BV
  LK46W-BV		    PCXAL-HV

  For your keyboard to function	correctly with your system, you	must load a
  keyboard mapping table (keymap) that is appropriate for your keyboard's
  model	and language. If you load a keymap that	does not correspond to your
  keyboard's model and language, your keyboard behavior	is unpredictable. The
  label	located	on the bottom surface of a keyboard usually specifies its
  model	(five letter code) and language	(two letter code). See the key-
  board(5) reference page for general information on keymaps and instructions
  for loading them in different	formats. The following tables supply Czech-
  specific information that you	need when loading keymaps.

				 PCXAL-PV	czech pcxalpv

  Keyboards can	have keys with characters printed on both the left and right
  half of the keycap. The way you set or use your keyboard to send different
  sets of characters varies from one keyboard model to another.	Furthermore,
  your keyboard	allows you to enter more characters than those printed on the
  keycaps. Refer to the	keyboard(5) reference page for information on how to
  enter	characters.


  For general information on printing support for different languages, refer
  to the i18n_printing(5) reference page. The PostScript fonts available for
  languages supported by the ISO 8859-2	codeset	are listed on the iso8859-
  2(5) reference page.
