ISO/IEC 8859-15

ISO 8859-15 is part 15 of ISO 8859, a standard character encoding defined by International Organization for Standardization. It is also known as Latin-9, and unofficially as Latin-0 but "not" as Latin-15. It is similar to ISO 8859-1 but replaces some less common symbols with the euro sign and some other characters that were missing. It encodes characters as 8 bits and can be used to represent the alphabet and other important characters for storing English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese (among other western European languages) texts on computers.

ISO-8859-15 ("note the extra hyphen between ISO and 8859") is the IANA charset name for 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 has aliases ISO_8859-15 and Latin-9.

All the printable characters from both ISO 8859-1 and ISO 8859-15 are also found in Windows-1252.
