 ISO/IEC 8859 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ISO 8859 was favored throughout the 1990s, having the advantages of being well-established and more easily implemented in software: the equation of one byte to one character is simple and adequate for most single-language applications, and there are no combining characters or variant forms.
ISO 8859 sought to remedy this problem by utilizing the eighth bit in an 8-bit byte in order to allow positions for another 128 characters.
The ISO 8859 standard is designed for reliable information exchange, not typography; the standard omits symbols needed for high-quality typography, such as optional ligatures, curly quotation marks, dashes, etc. As a result, high-quality typesetting systems often use proprietary or idiosyncratic extensions on top of the ASCII and ISO 8859 standards, or use Unicode instead.

 ISO/IEC 8859-1 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ISO 8859-1, more formally cited as ISO/IEC 8859-1 or less formally as Latin-1, is part 1 of ISO/IEC 8859, a standard character encoding originally developed by ISO, but later jointly maintained by ISO and IEC.
ISO 8859-1 was based on the Multinational Character Set used by Digital Equipment Corporation in the popular VT220 terminal.
ISO 8859-1 encodes what it refers to as "Latin alphabet no. 1," consisting of 191 characters from the Latin script.

 Vernon Frazee: Who/What is ISO and 8859-1?
The ISO_8859-1 standard is a document covering "Information technology -- 8-bit single-byte coded graphic character sets -- Part 1: Latin alphabet No. 1"
The mission of ISO is to promote the development of standardization and related activities in the world with a view to facilitating the international exchange of goods and services, and to developing cooperation in the spheres of intellectual, scientific, technological and economic activity.
The term ISO is used around the world to denote the organization, thus avoiding the plethora of acronyms resulting from the translation of "International Organization for Standardization" into the different national languages of members, e.g.

 ISO 8859-11 Latin/Thai Character Set standard
According to 7.1 above the character set of this part of ISO/IEC 8859 may be considered to consist of the character SPACE, a 94-character G0 and G1 graphic character sets may be identified by the use of the Registration Numbers from the ISO International register of coded character sets to be used with escape sequences.
This part of ISO/IEC 8859 specifies 183 characters allocated to the bit combinations of the code table (table 2).
In the terminology of ISO/IEC 8824 the character set of this part of ISO/IEC 8859 and the corresponding coded representations are distinct, and are known as the "character abstract syntax" and the "character transfer syntax" respectively.

 ISO 8859-7 vs. windows-1253
ISO 8859-7 (ISO Latin/Greek alphabet) and windows-1253 (CP 1253) are eight-bit character codes which can be used for texts in (modern) Greek.
There are probably also programs which accept ISO 8859-7 but not windows-1253.
Some programs can process windows-1253 encoded data but not ISO 8859-7 encoded data.

 ISO 8859-1 Latin 1 and Unicode characters in ampersand entities
Finally, note that positions 127-159 are not displayable characters in ISO 8859-1 Latin 1, and are not part of any HTML standard, so that HTML code such as "and#153;" is incorrect, and will be displayed differently in browsers on different platforms (probably often in ways that you did not intend).
The characters 128-159 are not used in ISO 8859-1 and Unicode, the character sets of HTML.
If the characters in the right column don't match their descriptions, then your browser is translating incorrectly between ISO 8859-1 Latin 1 and your platform's native character set.
