When preparing a comparison table of the various 8859-x parts,
I noticed an odd property of partial consistency between 8859-1-2-3-4.
Any character encoded by more than one coded character set is
always encoded at the same codepoint. (8859-9 does not have
this property; its Turkish letters don't agree with the 8859-3
DEGREE SIGN is always encoded at B0;
CENT SIGN is at A2 in 8859-1, doesn't appear in 8859-2-3-4;
LATIN SMALL LETTER KRA is at A2 in 8859-4, doesn't appear
LATIN CAPITAL LETTER C WITH CEDILLA is at C7 in 8859-1-2-3,
doesn't appear in 8859-4.
LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH OGONEK is at B1 in 8859-2-4,
doesn't appear in 8859-1-3;
LATIN SMALL LETTER S WITH CEDILLA is at BA in 8859-2-3,
doesn't appear in 8859-1-4.
What I'm wondering is whether this property was carefully designed
into 8859-1-2-3-4 when they were specified, or whether it is more or
less an accident of copying.
Does anyone know?
