NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Swedish,  swedish  - Introduction to Swedish language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

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

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following  codesets  for
       Swedish  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,  cp865,  and  cp1252 are the strings
              that represent these encoding formats in the  names
              of  codeset  converters.  See code_page(5) for more

       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.

   Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The   operating  system  supports  the  following  Swedish
       locales:    sv_SE.ISO8859-1,     sv_SE.ISO8859-15,     and
       sv_SE.UTF-8, for Sweden

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

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

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

       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  Swedish-specific information that you need
       when loading keymaps.

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

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

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For VT Style                     For PC Style
       Keyboard:      Select:           Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411-AM       swedish lk411am   LK471-AF       swedish pcxalja
       LK450-AM       swedish lk411am   LK47W-AF       swedish pcxalja
       LK451-AM       swedish lk411am   PCXAL-AM       swedish pcxalja
       LK461-AM       swedish lk411am   PCXAL-CA       swedish pcxalja
       LK46W-AM       swedish lk411am   PCXAL-JA       swedish pcxalja
                                        PCXAL-MA       swedish pcxalja

       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.
