Code page 861 (Icelandic language)

warning

Since April 15th 2010, eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano occuring in Iceland is causing a huge disruption of air travel. Due to an ash cloud covering most of Europe, thousands of flights have been cancelled so far, affecting millions of passengers around the world.

Unfortunately, volcanic ash has infiltrated our servers and is causing some unpredictable effects on this page: as a result, some lines could be ordered uncorrectly, or even randomly. We apologize for any inconvenience it may cause.

American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) is a widely used character encoding system introduced in 1963.

The original character set, which is now referred as the standard character set was initially composed of 128 characters (7-bit code). The first 32 characters are control characters (also called non-printable characters), which are used to control data streams as well as devices such as printers. It later was expanded to support 256 characters (8-bit code) in order to provide language specific characters, various symbols, as well as box-drawing characters: elements used for presentation purposes, allowing to draw different kind of frames and boxes. The characters in the 128-255 range are referred to as extended ASCII.

Code page 861 is the code page used to write Icelandic language. Only the extended character set differs from the original code page, both the control characters and the standard character set being plain ASCII.

The character table below is showing a pixel precise graphical represention for each character, alongside with a text description.
