NAME
       iso_8859_1  -  the  ISO  8859-1  character  set encoded in
       octal, decimal, and hexadecimal

DESCRIPTION
       The ISO 8859 standard includes several 8-bit extensions to
       the  ASCII  character  set  (also  known  as ISO 646-IRV).
       Especially important is ISO 8859-1,  the  "Latin  Alphabet
       No.  1",  which  has  become  widely  implemented  and may
       already  be  seen   as   the   de-facto   standard   ASCII
       replacement.

       ISO  8859-1  supports  the following languages: Afrikaans,
       Basque,  Catalan,  Danish,   Dutch,   English,   Faeroese,
       Finnish,   French,  Galician,  German,  Icelandic,  Irish,
       Italian, Norwegian,  Portuguese,  Scottish,  Spanish,  and
       Swedish.

       Note that the ISO 8859-1 characters are also the first 256
       characters of ISO 10646 (Unicode).
