ISO/IEC 8859-8

ISO 8859-8, more specifically ISO / IEC 8859-8 also known as ISO - Hebrew, is a recently updated in 1999 by the ISO standard for information technology to character encoding with eight bits and the eighth part of the family of standards ISO / IEC 8859th

The encodable with seven -bit US-ASCII characters correspond with leading zero bits. In addition to the 95 displayable ASCII characters (2016 - 7E16 ) codes ISO 8859-8 60 more ( A016, A216 - BE16, DF16, E016 - FA16, FE16 FD16 - ), for a total of 155 theoretically possible 256 ( = 28). Positions 0016- 1F16 and 7F16, 9F16 are assigned in ISO / IEC 8859, and thus the ISO / IEC 8859-8 no characters. The defined by IANA as ISO -8859 -8 ( with hyphen) means the combination of the characters of this standard with control characters can not be represented in accordance with ISO / IEC 6429th

ISO 8859-8 contains all the consonants of the Hebrew alphabet, but not the vowel signs.


SP (2016, "space ") is the space, NBSP ( A016, " non-breaking space " ), the non-breaking spaces and AD16 is the conditional hyphen ( SHY, a "soft hyphen "), which is normally visible only at the end of the line. At position FD16 and FE16 left-to -right and right-to -left marks ( U 200 E and U 200 F) sit.
