Code page 862

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Code page 862 (also known as CP 862, IBM 00862,[1] OEM 862 (Hebrew),[2][3] MS-DOS Hebrew[4])is a code page used under MS-DOS for Hebrew.

Like ISO 8859-8, it encodes only letters, not vowel-points or cantillation marks. As DOS had no inherent bidirectionality support,[citation needed] Hebrew text encoded using code page 862 was usually stored in visual order; nevertheless, a few DOS applications, notably a word processor named EinsteinWriter, stored Hebrew in logical order.

Code page 862 was replaced by Windows-1255 in Windows 3.x and 9x systems, and later by Unicode in Windows NT onwards. It is now obsolete.

Code page layout[edit]

The following table shows code page 862.[2][5] It has the Hebrew letters in code positions 128–154 (80–9Ahex), but otherwise it is identical to code page 437. 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 and 7Fhex) have a different interpretation in some circumstances – see code page 437.
