NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     charset - description of the standard supported character set

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     A single 8-bit character set, based on ISO	8859-1,	is currently
     supported.	 Other character sets may be supported in the future.

     ISO 8859-1	is an 8-bit single-byte	coded character	set.  This set,	Latin
     Alphabet #1, contains characters used for general purpose applications in
     typical office environments in at least the following languages: Danish,
     Dutch, English, Faeroese, Finnish,	French,	German,	Icelandic,Irish,
     Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish.

     The ASCII 7-bit character set is a	proper subset of 8859-1	(see
     ASCII(5)).	 The characters	added by ISO 8859-1 each have the most
     significant bit of	the byte on.
