ISO_8859-15(7)             Linux Programmer's Manual            ISO_8859-15(7)



NAME
       iso_8859-15  - the ISO 8859-15 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.
       However, it lacks the EURO symbol and does not fully cover Finnish  and
       French.   ISO 8859-15 is a modification of ISO 8859-1 that covers these
       needs.

       ISO 8859-15 supports the following languages: Albanian, Basque, Breton,
       Catalan,  Danish,  Dutch,  English, Estonian, Faroese, Finnish, French,
       Frisian,  Galician,  German,  Greenlandic,  Icelandic,  Irish   Gaelic,
       Italian,  Latin,  Luxemburgish,  Norwegian, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romanic,
       Scottish Gaelic, Spanish, and Swedish.
