MARC 21 Specifications for Record Structure, Character Sets, and Exchange Media

Code Table Basic Arabic

December 2007

The first column in this table contains the MARC-8 code (in hex) for the character as coming from the G0 graphic set, the second column contains the MARC-8 code (in hex) for the character as coming from the G1 graphic set, the third column contains the UCS/Unicode 16-bit code (in hex), the fourth column contains the UTF-8 code (in hex) for the UCS characters, the fifth column contains a representation of the character (where possible), the sixth column contains the MARC character name, followed by the UCS name. If the MARC name is the same as or very similar to the UCS name, only the UCS name is given.


Not all characters display in all browsers. We have attempted to allow for font families that show each character set, but you must have one of these fonts on your computer. See the W3C site for a discussion of fonts: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/fonts.html#generic-font-families.
