Foreword

IS0 (the International Organization for standardization) is a worldwide federation of

national standards bodies (IS0 member bodies). The work of preparing International

Standards is normally carried out through IS0 technical committees. Each member

body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, govern-

mental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to

the member bodies for approval before their acceptance as International Standards by

the IS0 Council. They are approved in accordance with IS0 procedures requiring at

least 75 % approval by the member bodies voting.
International Standard IS0 8859-1 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 97,
Information processing systems.

Users should note that all International Standards undergo revision from time to time

and that any reference made herein to any other International Standard implies its

latest edition, unless otherwise stated.
