# EBCDIC 256

This article does not cite any sources. (May 2018) (Learn how and when to remove this template message) |

IBM code page 256 (CCSID 256) is an EBCDIC code page used in IBM mainframes. It supports all of Latin-1-charset except for the middle dot (·) (required to support Catalan), copyright sign (©) superscript one (¹), multiplication sign (×), division sign (÷). EBCDIC 500 replaces the Peseta Sign (₧) (not in ISO 8859-1) with the middle dot, the florin sign (ƒ) with the copyright sign, the dotless i (ı) with the superscript one, the double low line (‗) with the multiplication sign, and the en space with the division sign to include all of ISO 8859-1 (but in an arrangement similar to this code page). It supports the following:

- Afrikaans
- Albanian
- Basque
- Breton
- Corsican
- Dutch (If IJ/ij is typed as two characters)
- English
- Estonian (Š, š, Ž and ž missing, but only in loanwords)
