ISO_8859-1(7)              Linux Programmer's Manual             ISO_8859-1(7)



NAME
       iso_8859-1  -  the  ISO 8859-1 character set encoded in octal, decimal,
       and hexadecimal

DESCRIPTION
       The ISO 8859 standard includes several 8-bit extensions  to  the  ASCII
       character set (also known as ISO 646-IRV).  Especially important is ISO
       8859-1, the "Latin Alphabet No. 1", which has become widely implemented
       and may already be seen as the de-facto standard ASCII replacement.

       ISO   8859-1  supports  the  following  languages:  Afrikaans,  Basque,
       Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, Faeroese, Finnish,  French,  Galician,
       German,  Icelandic,  Irish,  Italian,  Norwegian, Portuguese, Scottish,
       Spanish, and Swedish.

       Note that the ISO 8859-1 characters are also the first  256  characters
       of ISO 10646 (Unicode).
