ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

code page 860

Okay, so imagine you have a book that is written in a secret code that only certain people can understand. This special code is called code page 860. It is a way for computers to understand and show letters and symbols that are used in different languages, like Spanish or Portuguese.

Just like how you need to know a special way to write letters in these languages, computers need to know how to show these letters on a screen or print them on paper. Code page 860 is like a guidebook that tells the computer how to show these letters and symbols correctly.

So, the next time you're typing on your computer or reading something online in another language besides English, remember that the code page 860 is helping you see those letters and symbols correctly!
