ASCII ISO8859 file location?


Can someone tell me where I can find the ASCII iso 8859 file locations?

I'd like to make some symbols of my own.
I'm creating my own hexadecimal symbols, because the current ones are horrible, so I only need 15 symbols.

Perhaps this is a loaded question, as I understand iso / UTF-8 is a complex issue.

Can someone also tell me if iso8859-12 is free for me to use?

If you mean that you need to add characters to a font, you just need to install Fontforge. If you mean something else, then I didn't understand you :-(

No, I need to add actual characters to an ASCII table.

I found some tables in usr/share/i18n/supported

But they weren't images that I could edit.
When I "man ASCII" it tells me about character codes but not where the graphical table is located, perhaps I'll need to even use some Assembly Language to manipulate them, I dunno?
(they might not be graphical tables but some Machine code)
