ISO 8859-1, the most common 8-bit extension to ASCII now that CP437 has gone the way of the dodo. Latin-1 adds a number of letters with diacriticals, as well as many other characters.

The Latin-1 character set makes up the first 256 characters of the Unicode character set (ISO 10646). Latin-1 is also subset of CP1252, the Windows default character set. Latin-1 is more or less superseded by Latin-9 (ISO-8859-15), which replaces some less-commonly-used symbols with things such as the euro symbol, s and z with carons, and the oe ligature used in French.

Latin-1 supports most Western European languages.

The Latin-1 character set is:
