Part III: Appendixes > Latin 1 Character Repertoire and Keycodes

Appendix B. Latin 1 Character Repertoire and Keycodes

Table B-1 lists the characters in the Latin 1 character repertoire, with Unicode equivalents in the range of U+0000 to U+00FF (that is, C0 Controls, Basic Latin, C1 Controls, and Latin 1 Supplemental). The table's first column (labeled Dec), lists each character's code point in decimal (the standard ASCII or Latin 1 value), the second column provides the Unicode escape sequence for the character, and the third column describes or shows the character itself. See Chapter 4, for more information on character encoding in Flash. Table B-2 and Table B-3 list the keycodes used with the Key object. Although there is some overlap, keycodes represent physical keys on the keyboard and have no direct relation to the Latin 1 characters listed in Table B-1. That said, you'll notice that the keycodes for letters and numbers, listed in Table B-3, are identical to the Latin 1 code points (and ASCII values) for the letters A-Z and the numbers 0-9. See Key.getCode( ) and the Key object in the ActionScript Language Reference for more information on keycodes.
