Mac OS Icelandic is an obsolete character encoding that was used in Apple Macintosh computers to represent Icelandic text. It is largely identical to Mac OS Roman, except for the Icelandic special characters Ý, Þ and Ð which have replaced typography characters.

IBM uses code page 1286 (CCSID 1286) for Mac OS Icelandic.[1]

Layout[edit]

Each character is shown with its equivalent Unicode code point. Only the second half of the table (code points 128–255) is shown, the first half (code points 0–127) being the same as ASCII.
