NAME

  Dutch, dutch,	Flemish, flemish - Introduction	to Dutch and Flemish language
  support

DESCRIPTION

  This reference page describes	the coded character set	(codeset), locale,
  device, and other support for	the Dutch or Flemish language.

  Codesets


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

    +  ISO 8859-1 (ISO Latin-1)

       ISO8859-1 is the	string that represents this codeset in the names of
       locales and codeset converters. See iso8859-1(5)	for more information.

    +  ISO 8859-15 (ISO	Latin-9)

       ISO8859-15 is the string	that represents	this codeset in	the names of
       locales and codeset converters. See iso8859-15(5) for more informa-
       tion.

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

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

    +  PC code pages

       cp437, cp850, and cp1252	are the	strings	that represent these encoding
       formats 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.

  Dutch	Locales


  The operating	system provides	the following Dutch/Flemish locales for	dif-
  ferent countries:

    +  nl_BE.ISO8859-1,	nl_BE.ISO8859-15, and nl_BE.UTF-8 for Belgium

    +  nl_NL.ISO8859-1,	nl_NL.ISO8859-15, and nl_NL.UTF-8 for the Netherlands


  Of these locales, only the .ISO8859-15 and .UTF-8 locales support the	euro
  currency sign.

  You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out if	these locales
  are installed	on your	system.	See i18n_intro(5) for information on setting
  locale from the operating system command line.

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

  Keyboards


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

  _____________________________________________
  VT Style (105/108 keys)   PC Style (102 keys)
  _____________________________________________
  LK201-LH		    LK471-AH
  LK201-NH		    LK47W-AH
  LK401-AH		    LK97W-AH
  LK402-AH		    PCXAL-GH
  LK411-AH		    PCXAL-KH
  LK412-AH		    PCXAL-NH
  LK450-AH		    PCCAL-NH
  LK451-AH
  LK461-AH
  LK46W-AH
  _____________________________________________

  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 Dutch-
  specific information that you	need when loading keymaps.

  ______________________________________________________________

  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.

  Printers


  PostScript fonts for languages supported by the ISO 8859-1 codeset are
  printer resident.
