ISO/IEC 8859-4

ISO 8859-4, also known as Latin-4 or "North European", is an 8-bit character encoding, part of the ISO 8859 standard. It was designed originally to cover Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Greenlandic, and Sami. It has been largely superseded by ISO 8859-10 and Unicode.

ISO_8859-4:1988, more commonly known by its preferred MIME name of ISO-8859-4 is the IANA charset consisting of this standard used together with the control codes from ISO/IEC 6429 for the C0 (0x00-0x1F) and C1(0x80-0x9F) parts. Escape sequences (from ISO/IEC 6429 or ISO/IEC 2022) are notto be interpreted. This character set also has the aliases iso-ir-110, ISO_8859-4, latin4, l4 and csISOLatin4.

Codepage layout

In the table above, 20 is the regular SPACE character, and A0 is the NO-BREAK SPACE. AD is a SOFT HYPHEN, which should not appear at all in compliant web browsers.

Code values 00-1F, 7F, and 80-9F are not assigned to characters by ISO/IEC 8859-4.
