Emacs classifies characters into various character sets, each of which has a name which is a symbol. Each character belongs to one and only one character set.
In general, there is one character set for each distinct script. For
latin-iso8859-1 is one character set,
greek-iso8859-7 is another, and
ascii is another. An
Emacs character set can hold at most 9025 characters; therefore, in some
cases, characters that would logically be grouped together are split
into several character sets. For example, one set of Chinese
characters, generally known as Big 5, is divided into two Emacs
ASCII characters are in character set
non-ASCII characters 128 through 159 are in character set
eight-bit-control, and codes 160 through 255 are in character set
tif object is a symbol that names a character set,
preferred-coding-systemhelps determine which coding system to use to encode characters in a charset.
