Code page 852 (also known as CP 852, IBM 00852,[1] OEM 852 (Latin II),[2][3] MS-DOS Latin 2[4]) is a code page used under MS-DOS to write Central European languages that use Latin script (such as Bosnian, Croatian, Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian or Slovak).

Note that code page 852 (MS-DOS Latin 2) is very different from ISO/IEC 8859-2 (ISO Latin-2), although both are informally referred to as "Latin-2" in different language regions.[5]

Some of the box drawing characters of the original DOS code page 437 were sacrificed in order to put in more accented letters (all printable characters from ISO 8859-2 are included). These changes caused display glitches in MS-DOS applications that made use of the box drawing characters to display a GUI-like surface in text mode (e.g. Norton Commander). Several local encodings were invented to avoid the problem, for example the Kamenický encoding for Czech and Slovak.[6]

Code page layout[edit]

The following table shows code page 852.[2][7] Each character is shown with its equivalent Unicode code point and its decimal code point. Only the second half of the table (code points 128–255) is shown, the first half (code points 0–127) being the same as ASCII; although code points 1–31 and 127 (00–1Fhex) have a different interpretation in some circumstances – see code page 437.
