ISO 8859-5

ISO 8859-5 is an ISO standard Character set for Cyrillic but has never really caught on in practice. It is not nearly as popular as Windows-1251 which covers the same alphabet but also adds some extra characters.

  • upper case: А Б В Г Д Е Ж З И Й К Л М Н О П Р С Т У Ф Х Ц Ч Ш Щ Ъ Ы Ь Э Ю Я
  • lower case: а б в г д е ж з и й к л м н о п р с т у ф х ц ч ш щ ъ ы ь э ю я

  • others: № Ё ё Ђ ђ Ѓ ѓ Є є Ѕ ѕ І і Ї ї Ј ј Љ љ Њ њ Ћ ћ Ќ ќ § Ў ў Џ џ

Uppercase Cyrillic was based on Greek characters with extra characters added where the Greek had no equivalent sound. In addition the Greek characters not needed were removed. Thus you see a similar order for the letters with new letters inserted as needed.

The following table shows ISO 9959-5. Each character is shown with its decimal code and its Unicode equivalent.

The full ISO 8859-5 includes ASCII values. The ones shown here are unique to this coding. This code is related to the Windows-1251 coding system but does not include all of the characters in that system nor are the code combinations the same.
