( => ( => ( => NeXT character set [pageid] => 53159801 ) =>

The NeXT character set (often aliased as NeXTSTEP encoding vector, WE8NEXTSTEP[1] or next-multinational[2]) was used by the "NeXTSTEP and "OPENSTEP operating systems on "NeXT workstations since 1988. It is based on "Adobe Systems' "PostScript (PS) character set aka "Adobe Standard Encoding where unused code points were filled up with characters from "ISO 8859-1 (Latin 1), although at differing code points.[3]

Character set[edit]

The following table shows the NeXT character set. Each character is shown with a potential "Unicode equivalent. Code points differing from Adobe Standard Encoding are shown boxed. Codepoints 00hex (0) to 7Fhex (127) are nearly identical to "ASCII.
