ISO-8859-13?

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Aug 9, 2009.

  1. While looking through the list of available locales in locale.gen(5), I came
    across this:

    mi_NZ ISO-8859-13

    "mi" is MÄori, while ISO-8859-13, also known as the "Latin-7" or "Baltic
    Rim" character set, is as described here
    <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_8859-13>. Yes, it has the vowels with
    macrons on top. But it also has other random stuff like characters with
    strokes and rings, háÄek, ogonek, and who knows what else.

    Do yourself a favour, stick with Unicode.
