ISO 8859-15, also called Latin-9, is an ISO 8859 variant for use with Western European languages, and is an improvement over ISO 8859-1 (or Latin-1) for that purpose.

ISO 8859-14 <-- ISO 8859-15 --> ISO 8859-16

The changes from Latin-1 to Latin-9 are these :


code 164 which was U+00A4  ¤  currency sign &curren; becomes U+20AC    Euro sign &euro;
code 166 which was U+00A6  ¦  broken bar &brvbar; becomes U+0160  Š  Latin capital letter S with caron &Scaron;
code 168 which was U+00A8  ¨  diaeresis &uml; becomes U+0161  š  Latin small letter S with caron &scaron;
code 180 which was U+00B4  ´  acute accent &acute; becomes U+017D  Ž  Latin capital letter Z with caron
code 184 which was U+00B8  ¸  cedilla &cedil; becomes U+017E  ž  Latin small letter Z with caron
code 188 which was U+00BC  ¼  vulgar fraction one quarter &frac14; becomes U+0152  Œ  Latin capital ligature oe &OElig;
code 189 which was U+00BD  ½  vulgar fraction one half &frac12; becomes U+0153  œ  Latin small ligature oe &oelig;
code 190 which was U+00BE  ¾  vulgar fraction three quarters &frac34; becomes U+0178  Ÿ  Latin capital letter Y with diaeresis &Yuml;

 

As with all of the ISO 8859 Character Sets, the first 160 characters (the 128 7-bit characters plus the first 32 control characters with the high bit set) are identical to ISO 8859-1 or Latin-1. Thus, I will only list the 8 characters different from ISO 8859-1.

The columns below should be interpreted as :

  1. The ISO 8859-15 code in Octal
  2. The ISO 8859-15 code in Decimal
  3. The ISO 8859-15 code in Hexidecimal
  4. The Unicode code for the character
  5. The character in question
  6. The Unicode name for the character
  7. The HTML entity if any. (&#xUUUU; always works)
