country codes

█ŢInternational language supportŮ█

 ■ DOS defaults to US English.  Use COUNTRY= if you want to use a

   character set for another supported language.



 ■ By default, DOS looks for a file named COUNTRY.SYS (in the root

   directory of the boot disk), but if you move the file to a different

   directory, or rename it, you must tell DOS about it with the COUNTRY=

   CONFIG.SYS command.



 █ŢSupported languages; date and time formatsŮ█

   The following table lists country codes and character sets (code

   pages) supported by DOS with examples of date and time formats used

   when each country code is in use:
