NAME
       iso_8859-2  -  the  ISO 8859-2 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).  ISO 8859-2, the "Latin
       Alphabet No. 2" is used to encode Central and  Eastern  European  Latin
       characters and is implemented by several program vendors.

       ISO   8859-2  supports  the  following  languages:  Albanian,  Bosnian,
       Croatian, Czech, English, Finnish, German,  Hungarian,  Irish,  Polish,
       Slovak, Slovenian and Sorbian.

       Also  note  that the following Cyrillic-based languages have one-to-one
       transliterations to Latin 2: Macedonian and Serbian.
