Windows-1256


Windows-1256

Windows-1256 is a code page used to write Arabic (and possibly some other languages that use Arabic script, like Persian) under Microsoft Windows.  This code page is not compatible with ISO 8859-6 and MacArabic encodings.

It encodes every abstract single letter of the basic Arabic alphabet, not every isolated, initial, medial, final or legature form of them. Arabic letters in C0-FF range are in Arabic alphabetic order, but some Latin characters are interspersed within them. These are some Windows-1252 Latin characters used for French, due to this European language has some historic relevance in former French colonies in North Africa as Morocco and Algeria. This way, French text can be rendered with Windows 1256 up to a passable accuracy (but it lacks accentuated French letters anyway).

Unicode and UTF-8 are preferred to Windows 1256 in modern applications.

Code page layout

Only the upper half (128–255) of the table is shown, the lower half (0–127) being plain ASCII.

Here every Arabic letter is shown in isolated form. The actual forms of the letters inside Arabic words are rendered by a combination of software rules and appropriate font support.
