NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Danish, danish - Introduction to Danish language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This  reference  page  describes  the  coded character set
       (codeset), locale, device, and other support for the  Danish

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  operating  system supports the following codesets for
       Danish by means of locales, codeset converters,  or  both:
       ISO 8859-1 (ISO Latin-1)

              ISO8859-1  is the string that represents this codeset
 in the names of locales and codeset converters.
              See iso8859-1(5) for more information.  ISO 8859-15
              (ISO Latin-9)

              ISO8859-15 is the string that represents this codeset
 in the names of locales and codeset converters.
              See iso8859-15(5) for  more  information.   UTF-16,
              UCS-4, and UTF-8

              UTF-16,  UCS-4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent
 these  encoding  formats  in  the  names  of
              locales  or  codeset converters. See Unicode(5) for
              more information.  PC code pages

              cp850, cp865, and cp1252 are the strings that  represent
 these encoding formats in the names of codeset
 converters. See code_page(5) for more  information.

       See  the  i18n_intro(5)  and l10n_intro(5) reference pages
       for   introductory   information    on    codesets.    The
       iconv_intro(5) reference page discusses codeset converters
       and how to use them.

   Danish Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  operating  system  provides  the   following   Danish
       locales:     da_DK.ISO8859-1,     da_DK.ISO8859-15,    and
       da_DK.UTF-8 for Denmark

       Only the and locales support the euro character.

       You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out
       if  these  locales  are  installed  on  your  system.  See
       i18n_intro(5) for information on setting locale  by  using
       the operating system command line.

       For  the  Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you set locale
       by setting the session language. To do this, use the  Language
  menu  accessed from the Options button on the Login

   Keyboards    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following VT  style  and
       PC  style  keyboards with Danish characters printed on the

       VT Style (105/108 keys)   PC Style (102 keys)
       LK411-AD                  LK471-AD
       LK412-AD                  LK47W-AD
       LK450-AD                  LK97W-AD
       LK451-AD                  PCXAL-AD
       LK461-AD                  PCXAL-FD
       LK46W-AD                  PCXAL-GD

       For your keyboard to function correctly with your  system,
       you  must  load  a keyboard mapping table (keymap) that is
       appropriate for your keyboard's model and language. If you
       load  a keymap that does not correspond to your keyboard's
       model and  language,  your  keyboard  behavior  is  unpredictable.
  The  label  located  on the bottom surface of a
       keyboard usually specifies its model  (five  letter  code)
       and language (two letter code). See the keyboard(5) reference
 page for general information on keymaps and  instructions
 for loading them in different formats. The following
       tables supply Danish-specific information  that  you  need
       when loading keymaps.

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       For VT Style             For PC Style
       Keyboard:      Select:   Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411-AD       lk411     LK471-AD       lk471ad or lk471

                                PCCAL-ND       pcxal

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For VT Style                    For PC Style
       Keyboard:      Select:          Keyboard:      Select:

                                       PCXAL-ND       danish pcxalgd
                                       PCCAL-ND       danish pcxalgd

       Keyboards  can  have  keys with characters printed on both
       the left and right half of the keycap. The way you set  or
       use  your  keyboard  to  send different sets of characters
       varies from one keyboard model  to  another.  Furthermore,
       your  keyboard  allows  you  to enter more characters than
       those printed on the keycaps.  Refer  to  the  keyboard(5)
       reference page for information on how to enter characters.

   Printers    [Toc]    [Back]
       PostScript fonts for languages supported by the ISO 8859-1
       codeset  are  printer  resident.  See i18n_printing(5) for
       more information about printer setup options.
