ISO/IEC 8859-16:2001, Information technology — 8-bit single-byte coded graphic character sets — Part 16: Latin alphabet No. 10, is part of the ISO/IEC 8859 series of ASCII-based standard character encodings, first edition published in 2001. The same encoding was defined as Romanian Standard SR 14111 in 1998, named the "Romanian Character Set for Information Interchange".[2] It is informally referred to as Latin-10 or South-Eastern European. It was designed to cover Albanian, Croatian, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian and Slovenian, but also French, German, Italian and Irish Gaelic (new orthography).

ISO-8859-16 is the IANA preferred charset name for this standard when supplemented with the C0 and C1 control codes from ISO/IEC 6429. Microsoft has assigned code page 28606 a.k.a. Windows-28606 to ISO-8859-16.[3]

Originally, ISO 8859-16 was proposed as a different encoding similar to ISO 8859-1 with the missing French Œ œ (at the same spot as same place as DEC-MCS and Lotus International Character Set) and Ÿ (which was NOT at the same place as these sets, as Ý was in that spot for Icelandic), Dutch IJ ij, and Turkish Ğ ğ İ ı Ş ş (note that the euro sign did not exist at the time), but that got rejected.[4]
