ISO/IEC 8859-5:1999, Information technology — 8-bit single-byte coded graphic character sets — Part 5: Latin/Cyrillic alphabet, is part of the ISO/IEC 8859 series of ASCII-based standard character encodings, first edition published in 1988. It is informally referred to as Latin/Cyrillic. It was designed to cover languages using a Cyrillic alphabet such as Bulgarian, Belarusian, Russian, Serbian and Macedonian but was never widely used. It would also have been usable for Ukrainian in the Soviet Union from 1933–1990, but it is missing the Ukrainian letter ge, ґ, which is required in Ukrainian orthography before and since, and during that period outside Soviet Ukraine. As a result, IBM created Code page 1124.

ISO-8859-5
Alias(es) ISO-IR-144, Windows-28595
Language(s) Russian, Bulgarian, Belarusian, Macedonian, Serbian, Ukrainian (partial)
Standard ISO/IEC 8859-5,
ECMA-113 (since 1988 edition)
Classification Extended ASCII, ISO 8859
Extends US-ASCII, ISO-IR-153
Preceded by ECMA-113:1986 (ISO-IR-111)
Other related encoding(s) IBM-1124

ISO-8859-5 is the IANA preferred charset name for this standard when supplemented with the C0 and C1 control codes from ISO/IEC 6429.

The 8-bit encodings KOI8-R and KOI8-U, CP866, and also Windows-1251 are far more commonly used. Another possible way to represent Cyrillic is Unicode.

The Windows code page for ISO-8859-5 is code page 28595 a.k.a. Windows-28595.[1]

Related code pagesEdit

IBM Code page 1124 is mostly identical to ISO-8859-5, but replaces ѓ with ґ for Ukrainian use. ISO-IR-200 and ISO-IR-201 are other derivatives, changing several of the non-Russian letters in order to support the Kildin Sami, Komi and Nenets languages, and the Chuvash, Komi, Mari and Udmurt languages, respectively.

The Cyrillic set of ISO-8859-5 is also called ISO-IR-144.[2] It is a superset of ISO-IR-153, and claims conformance to a 1987 edition of the GOST 19768 character set standard.[3] The ECMA-113 standard has been equivalent to ISO-8859-5 since its second edition,[3] its first edition (ISO-IR-111) having been an extension of the earlier KOI-8 (defined by GOST 19768-74).
