- ISO/IEC 8859-15
ISO 8859-15 is part 15 of
ISO 8859, a standard character encodingdefined by International Organization for Standardization. It is also known as Latin-9, and unofficially as Latin-0 but "not" as Latin-15. It is similar to ISO 8859-1 but replaces some less common symbols with the euro signand some other characters that were missing. It encodes characters as 8 bits and can be used to represent the alphabetand other important characters for storing English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese (among other western European languages) texts on computers.
ISO-8859-15 ("note the extra hyphen between ISO and 8859") is the IANA charset name for this standard used together with the control codes from
ISO/IEC 6429for the C0 (0x00–0x1F) and C1 (0x80–0x9F) parts. Escape sequences (from ISO/IEC 6429 or ISO/IEC 2022) are not to be interpreted. This charset has aliases ISO_8859-15 and Latin-9.
All the printable characters from both ISO 8859-1 and ISO 8859-15 are also found in
