The graphic characters of of ISO 8859-7 constitute a single coded character set. However, when this character set is implemented together with other coding standards, such as ISO 2022 or ISO 4873, the code table of this part of ISO 8859-7 is considered to be the following components: The character SPACE, represented by the bit combination 20(hex) A 94-character G0 graphic character set, represented by the bit combinations 21 to 7E(hex) A 96-character G1 graphic character set, represented by the bit combinations A0 to FF(hex)

For information on the G0 and G1 character set designations, refer to iso2022(5).

When required by other coding standards, for example ISO 2022 or ISO 4873, the following pair of escape sequences are used to designate the G0 and the G1 sets, respectively:

ESC 28 42 or ESC ( B ESC 2D 41 or ESC - F

According to ISO 2022, the character SPACE does not require designation.
