ABICOMP character set

The ABICOMP Character Set was an encoded repertoire of characters used in Brazil. It was devised by the Associação Brasileira de Indústria de Computadores, a Brazilian computer industry association defunct[1] in 1992. It was used on Brazilian-made computers and several printers brands.[2][3][4]

Coverage

The ABICOMP Character Set obviously contained the characters to cover Portuguese. It also contained characters to cover other languages such as Spanish, French, Italian and German. However, the quotation marks “«” and “»” for (European) Portuguese, (European) Spanish, French and Italian are missing.

This character set[5] was different from the Brazilian Standard BraSCII,[6] which was very similar to ISO 8859-1. Although once very used in Brazil, this character set became less and less used because of the ubiquity of other character sets (ISO 8859-1 and later Unicode).
