IANA character set name
- "Charset" redirects here. For character sets in general, see Character encoding.
An IANA character set name (often simply called a charset) is a standardized name for a character encoding. Many standards, such as HTML and MIME, make use of these standard names. Examples of such names are "US-ASCII", "UTF-8", "windows-1252", and "Shift_JIS".
The names are case-insensitive. Aliases (multiple names for the same encoding) are common.
