NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Finnish,  finnish  - Introduction to Finnish language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

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

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following  codesets  for
       Finnish  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 and 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  i18n_intro(5)  and  l10n_intro(5)  for   introductory
       information  on  codesets. See iconv_intro(5) for information
 on codeset converters and how to use them.

   Finnish Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  operating  system  provides  the  following   Finnish
       locales:     fi_FI.ISO8859-1,     fi_FI.ISO8859-15,    and
       fi_FI.UTF-8 for Finland

       The fi_FI.ISO8859-15 and fi_FI.UTF-8 locales use the  euro
       symbol  for  currency.  Because the fi_FI.ISO8859-1 locale
       repertoire does not contain the euro symbol, it  continues
       to use the markka currency symbol.

       You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out
       if  this  locale  is  installed  on   your   system.   See
       i18n_intro(5)  for  information on setting locale from the
       operating system command line.

       In the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you need to set a
       locale  by  setting the session language. To do this, from
       the Options menu of the  Login  window,  choose  Language.
       Then,  from  the  Language  options menu, choose a session

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

       VT Style (105/108 keys)   PC Style (102 keys)
       LK411-AF                  LK471-AF
       LK412-AF                  LK47W-AF
       LK450-AF                  LK97W-AF
       LK451-AF                  PCXAL-CA
       LK461-AF                  PCXAL-JA

       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 keyboard(5) for general
 information on keymaps and instructions  for  loading
       them  in  different  formats.  The following tables supply
       Finnish-specific information that you  need  when  loading

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       For VT Style             For PC Style
       Keyboard:      Select:   Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411-AF       lk411     LK471-AF       lk471af or lk471
       LK412-AF       lk411     LK47W-AF       lk471af or lk471
       LK450-AF       lk450     LK97W-AF       lk97waf or lk97w
       LK451-AF       lk450     PCXAL-CA       pcxalca
       LK461-AF       lk461     PCXAL-JA       pcxalja
       LK46W-AF       lk461

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For VT Style                     For PC Style
       Keyboard:      Select:           Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411-AF       finnish lk411af   LK471-AF       finnish pcxalja
       LK412-AF       finnish lk411af   LK47W-AF       finnish pcxalja
       LK450-AF       finnish lk411af   PCXAL-CA       finnish pcxalca
       LK451-AF       finnish lk411af   PCXAL-JA       finnish pcxalja
       LK461-AF       finnish lk411af
       LK46W-AF       finnish lk411af

       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. See keyboard(5) for information
 on how to enter characters.

   Printers    [Toc]    [Back]
       PostScript fonts for languages supported by the ISO 8859-1
       codeset are printer resident.
