       Norwegian, norwegian - Introduction to Norwegian language support

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

       The operating system supports the following codesets for	 Norwegian  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, UTF-8

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

	      cp437,  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.

   Norwegian Locales
       The   operating	 system	 provides  the	following  Norwegian  locales:
       no_NO.ISO8859-1, no_NO.ISO8859-15, and no_NO.UTF-8 for Norway

       The no_NO.ISO8859-15 and no_NO.UTF-8 locales use the  euro  symbol  for
       currency.  Because  the no_NO.ISO8859-1 locale repertoire does not con‐
       tain the euro symbol, it continues to  use  the	traditional  Norwegian
       currency symbol.

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

       In  the	Common	Desktop Environment (CDE), you set a locale by setting
       the session language. To do this from the Options  menu	of  the	 Login
       window, choose Language. Then, from the Language options menu, choose a
       session language.

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

       VT Style (105/108 keys)	 PC Style (102 keys)
       LK411-AN			 LK471-AN
       LK412-AN			 LK47W-AN
       LK450-AN			 LK97W-AN
       LK451-AN			 PCXAL-AN
       LK461-AN			 PCXAL-FN
       LK46W-AN			 PCXAL-GN


       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  Norwegian-specific information that you need
       when loading keymaps.

       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. Refer to i18n_printing(5) for discussion  of  printer
       support options.
