International Country Codes

MS-DOS provides support for a number of different international code pages, which are simply character sets that facilitate the needs of a particular language. The lower ASCII characters (0 to 127) always remain the same, but the characters available in the upper ASCII set (128 to 255) are changed to make certain special characters available. The code page information file included with DOS 6 (EGA.CPI) includes displayable character sets for the following international code pages:

Code Page Country or Language
437 United States
860 Portuguese
850 Multilingual (Latin I)
863 Canadian-French
852 Slavic (Latin II)
865 Nordic
