NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Italian,  italian  - Introduction to Italian language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This reference page describes the codeset, locale, device,
       and other kinds of support for the Italian language.

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  operating system supports the following coded character
 sets (codesets) for Italian 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

              cp437, cp850, and cp1252 are the strings that  represent
  these encoding formats in the names 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.

   Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The   operating  system  supports  the  following  Italian
       locales:    it_IT.ISO8859-1,     it_IT.ISO8859-15,     and
       it_IT.UTF-8 for Italy

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

       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 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 Italian characters printed on  the

       VT Style (105/108 keys)   PC Style (102 keys)
       LK411-AI                  LK471-AI
       LK450-AI                  LK47W-AI
       LK451-AI                  LK97W-AI
       LK461-AI                  PCXAL-AI
       LK46W-AI                  PCXAL-FI

       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
       Italian-specific  information  that  you need when loading

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For VT Style                     For PC Style

       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. See i18n_printing(5) for a
       general discussion of printer support options.
