IT and communication - Characters and encodings: The ISO Latin 1 character repertoire:

The simple code table, with links to descriptions of characters

Each cell in the following table contains a character which acts as a link to a description of the character. If your browser shows links underlined, the presentation probably looks a bit messy; notice that on most browsers, the underlining can be turned off from the browser settings.

  ! " # $ % & ' ( ) * + , - . /
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 : ; < = > ?
@ A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O
P Q R S T U V W X Y Z [ \ ] ^ _
` a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o
p q r s t u v w x y z { | } ~
 

Warning: The table above is presented for a simple overview only. It may display incorrectly on some Web browsers e.g. due to font problems, and there can be great variation in the way the characters are presented in different media. You may wish to compare the presentation of the characters in the lower half of the table on your browser with the character table presented as a GIF image in the famous ISO 8859 Alphabet Soup document.

The upper half (six first rows) of the table contains the printable ASCII characters. Even for this well-established character repertoire, some characters might be different on different devices (in addition to the normal, expectable variation in glyph design).

See the detailed descriptions of the characters below for reliable information about each character.
