       Danish, danish - Introduction to Danish language support

       This  reference	page  describes	 the  coded  character	set (codeset),
       locale, device, and other support for the Danish language.

       The operating system supports the  following  codesets  for  Danish  by
       means of locales, codeset converters, or both: ISO 8859-1 (ISO Latin-1)

	      ISO8859-1	 is  the  string  that	represents this codeset in the
	      names of locales and codeset converters.	See  iso8859-1(5)  for
	      more information.	 ISO 8859-15 (ISO Latin-9)

	      ISO8859-15  is  the  string  that represents this codeset in the
	      names of locales and codeset converters. See  iso8859-15(5)  for
	      more information.	 UTF-16, UCS-4, and UTF-8

	      UTF-16,  UCS-4,  and  UTF-8 are the strings that represent these
	      encoding formats in the names of locales or codeset  converters.
	      See Unicode(5) for more information.  PC code pages

	      cp850,  cp865,  and  cp1252 are the strings that represent these
	      encoding	formats	 in  the  names	 of  codeset  converters.  See
	      code_page(5) for more information.

       See  the	 i18n_intro(5) and l10n_intro(5) reference pages for introduc‐
       tory information on codesets. The iconv_intro(5)	 reference  page  dis‐
       cusses codeset converters and how to use them.

   Danish Locales
       The   operating	 system	  provides   the   following  Danish  locales:
       da_DK.ISO8859-1, da_DK.ISO8859-15, and da_DK.UTF-8 for Denmark

       Only the and locales support the euro character.

       You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to  find	out  if	 these
       locales are installed on your system. See i18n_intro(5) for information
       on setting locale by using the operating system command line.

       For the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you set locale by setting the
       session	language.  To do this, use the Language menu accessed from the
       Options button on the Login window.

       The operating system supports the following VT style and PC style  key‐
       boards with Danish characters printed on the keys:

       VT Style (105/108 keys)	 PC Style (102 keys)
       LK411-AD			 LK471-AD
       LK412-AD			 LK47W-AD
       LK450-AD			 LK97W-AD
       LK451-AD			 PCXAL-AD
       LK461-AD			 PCXAL-FD
       LK46W-AD			 PCXAL-GD


       For your keyboard to function correctly with your system, you must load
       a keyboard mapping table (keymap) that is  appropriate  for  your  key‐
       board's	model  and language. If you load a keymap that does not corre‐
       spond to your keyboard's model and language, your keyboard behavior  is
       unpredictable.  The  label  located on the bottom surface of a keyboard
       usually specifies its model (five letter code) and language (two letter
       code).  See  the	 keyboard(5) reference page for general information on
       keymaps and instructions for loading them  in  different	 formats.  The
       following  tables supply Danish-specific information that you need when
       loading keymaps.

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       Keyboards can have keys with characters printed on both	the  left  and
       right  half of the keycap. The way you set or use your keyboard to send
       different sets of characters varies from one keyboard model to another.
       Furthermore,  your  keyboard  allows  you to enter more characters than
       those printed on the keycaps. Refer to the keyboard(5)  reference  page
       for information on how to enter characters.

       PostScript  fonts for languages supported by the ISO 8859-1 codeset are
       printer resident.  See  i18n_printing(5)	 for  more  information	 about
       printer setup options.
