The bit notation in ISO-8859-x series of standards are noted b8 ... b1.

What notation is that ? Normally it should be b7 ... b0.

For example, in ISO-8859-15 there is a table that says that b1 equals

1. This is wrong: 2^1=2, not 1. It should be b0 instead, where 2^0=1.

The same mistake is in ISO-8859-14, the same in ISO-8859-14 and most

likely in all 8859 series.
