ISO/IEC 8859-7

ISO 8859-7, also known as Greek, is an 8-bit character encoding, part of the ISO 8859 standard. It was designed originally to cover the modern Greek language as well as mathematical symbols derived from the Greek.

The original 1987 version of the standard had the same character assignments as the Greek national standard ELOT 928, published in 1986. The table in this article shows the updated 2003 version, which adds three characters (0xA4: euro sign U+20AC, 0xA5: drachma sign U+20AF, 0xAA: Greek Ypogegrammeni U+037A).

ISO_8859-7:1987, more commonly known by its preferred mime name of ISO-8859-7 (note extra hyphen), is the IANA charset consisting of the 1987 version 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 not to be interpreted. This charset also has the aliases iso-ir-126, ISO_8859-7, ELOT_928, ECMA-118, greek, greek8 and csISOLatinGreek.

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, 80–9F, AE, D2 and FF are not assigned to characters by ISO/IEC 8859-7.
