NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Icelandic,  icelandic - Introduction to Icelandic language

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

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

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following  codesets  for
       Icelandic  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 codeset
 converters. See Unicode(5)  for  more  information.
  PC code pages

              cp850,  cp861,  cp865,  and  cp1252 are the strings
              that represent these encoding fomats in  the  names
              of  codeset  converters.  See code_page(5) for more

       See  i18n_intro(5)  and  l10n_intro(5)  for   introductory
       information  on codesets. See iconv_intro(5) for a discussion
 of codeset converters and how to use them.

   Icelandic Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating  system  provides  the  following  Icelandic
       locales: is_IS.ISO8859-1 and is_IS.ISO8859-15 is_IS.UTF-8

              UTF-8  locales  support file code and internal process
 code according to ISO 10646 and Unicode  standards.
  File  code,  in  UTF-8 locales, may include
              characters encoded in more than 1 byte;  therefore,
              use  these locales in applications that can process
              multibyte data.

       The is_IS.ISO8859-15 and is_IS.UTF-8 locales  support  the
       euro monetary symbol; see euro(5).

       You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out
       which  locales  are  installed   on   your   system.   See
       i18n_intro(5) for information on setting a 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 PC-style  keyboards
 with Icelandic characters printed on the keys:

       PC-Style (102 keys)

       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  table  supplies
       Icelandic-specific  information that you need when loading

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format or xmodmap format:

       For PC-Style Keyboard:   Select:
       LK471-CQ                 icelandic lk471cq or lk471
       LK97W-CQ                 icelandic lk97wcq or lk97w

       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.
