ISO 6438

Summary

ISO 6438:1983, Documentation — African coded character set for bibliographic information interchange, is an ISO standard for an 8-bit character encoding for African languages. It has had little use (such as being available through UNIMARC[1]). In practice it is now superseded by Unicode.
