  Character Set	Designation


  The graphic characters of ISO	8859-8 constitute a single coded character
  set. However,	when this character set	is implemented together	with other
  coding standards, such as ISO	2022 or	ISO 4873, the code table of this part
  of ISO 8859-8	is considered to be the	following components:

    +  The character SPACE, represented	by the bit combination 20(hex)

    +  A 94-character G0 graphic character set,	represented by the bit combi-
       nations 21 to 7E(hex)

    +  A 96-character G1 graphic character set,	represented by the bit combi-
       nations A0 to FF(hex)

  For information on the G0 and	G1 character set designations, refer to
  iso2022(5).

  When required	by other coding	standards, for example ISO 2022	or ISO 4873,
  the following	pair of	escape sequences are used to designate the G0 and the
  G1 sets, respectively:

       ESC 28 42 or ESC	( B
       ESC 2D 41 or ESC	- H

  According to ISO 2022, the character SPACE does not require designation.
