Windows-1250 is a code page used under Microsoft Windows to represent texts in Central European and Eastern European languages that use Latin script, such as Polish, Czech, Slovak, Hungarian, Slovene, Serbo-Croatian (Latin script), Romanian (before 1993 spelling reform) and Albanian. It may also be used with the German language; German-language texts encoded with Windows-1250 and Windows-1252 are identical.

This has been replaced by Unicode (such as UTF-8) far more than Windows-1252. As of July 2020, under 0.1% of all web pages use Windows-1250.[1][2]

Windows-1250 is similar to ISO-8859-2 and has all the printable characters it has and more. However a few of them are rearranged (unlike Windows-1252, which keeps all printable characters from ISO-8859-1 in the same place). Most of the rearrangements seem to have been done to keep characters shared with Windows-1252 in the same place as in Windows-1252 but three of the characters moved (?, ?, ?) cannot be explained this way, since those do not occur in Windows-1252 and could have been put in the same positions as in ISO-8859-2 if ? had been put e.g. at 9F. The part that differs from ISO-8859-2 is compared with Windows-1252 in the table below:

IBM uses code page 1250 (CCSID 1250 and euro sign extended CCSID 5346) for Windows-1250.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9]
