ISO 8859-15

ISO 8859-15 (also known as Latin-9, and unofficially as Latin-0 but not as Latin-15) is part 15 of ISO 8859, a standard character encoding defined by ISO. It encodes characters as 8 bits and can be used to represent the alphabet and other important characters for storing English, French, German, Spanish and Portuguese (among other western European languages) texts on computers. It is identical to ISO 8859-1 except for these eight replacements:
