- ISO/IEC 8859-3
ISO 8859-3, also known as Latin-3 or "South European" is an 8-bit
character encoding, part of the ISO 8859standard. It was designed originally to cover Turkish, Maltese and Esperanto, though the introduction of ISO 8859-9superseded it for Turkish.
ISO_8859-3:1988, more commonly known by its preferred mime name of ISO-8859-3 (note extra hyphen), is the IANA registered charset consisting of this standard used together with the control codes from
ISO/IEC 6429for the C0 (0x00-0x1F) and C1(0x80-0x9F) parts. Escape sequences (from ISO/IEC 6429 or ISO/IEC 2022) are notto be interpreted. This encoding also has the aliases iso-ir-109, ISO_8859-3, latin3, l3 and csISOLatin3
The encoding remains popular with users of Esperanto, though use is waning as application support for
Unicodebecomes more common.
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, A5, AE, BE, C3, D0, E3, and F0 are not assigned to characters by ISO/IEC 8859-3.
