NAME

ISO8859-15, iso8859-15 - A character encoding system (codeset) for Albanian, Basque, Breton, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Faroese, Finnish, French, Frisian, Galician, German, Greenlandic, Icelandic, Irish Gaelic, Italian, Latin, Luxemburgish, Norwegian, Portuguese, Rhaeto-Romanic, Scottish Gaelic, and Swedish  

DESCRIPTION

The operating system provides no locales based on ISO 8859-15 (Latin-9), which is very similar to ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) except for the inclusion of the Euro currency sign (C=). Latin-9 is supported mainly as a means to supply fonts for languages that need to display and print this character. ISO 8859-15, UCS-2, UCS-4, UTF-8, and a limited number of PC code pages (cp125* and cp874) are the only encoding formats that support the Euro character. In terms of Tru64 UNIX locales, only those whose names end in .UTF-8 support the Euro monetary sign. Font support for the Euro character is enabled through the fonts supplied for ISO 8859-15 and a set of codeset converters that convert data from the other encoding formats to ISO8859-15.

Refer to Unicode(5) for information about the UCS-2, UCS-4, and UTF-8 encoding formats and to code_page(5) for information about PC code pages. The iconv_intro(5) reference page provides an introduction to codeset converters.

Note

The Euro currency sign was not defined in Unicode codesets before Version 2.1 of the Unicode standard, so implementations of Unicode encoding formats based on prior versions of the standard do not include the character.

Codeset Conversion

The following converter pairs are available for converting between ISO8859-15 and other encoding formats. For more information about the other encoding format for which ISO8859-15 is the input or output, see the reference page specified in the list item. Refer to iconv_intro(5) for information about using codeset converters. cp1252_ISO8859-15, ISO8859-15_cp1252

Font Support for ISO 8859-15

The operating system includes only bitmap fonts for the ISO8859-15 codeset. Although no PostScript fonts are included for this codeset, you can set up a generic print filter to substitute in a print job the appropriate PostScript font glyphs available in fonts provided for other codesets. Refer to i18n_printing(5) and wwpsof(8) for more information.
