KOI Sets


The 8 bit Kod dla Obmena i obrabotki Informacji (KOI-8) was not the first Cyrillic encoding, however it was the first famous Cyrillic encoding.


KOI is ASCII compatible, and contains all the Cyrillic characters needed for Russian and Bulgarian. The encoding was used to develop ISO-8859-5, and remains compatible.


There are many earlier and later versions of KOI standardized in the 20th century by various agencies and states, however KOI-8 remained the most popular way to encode Cyrillic until ISO-8859-5 and finally, Unicode.
