Code Page 862 (CP862, DOS 862, DOS CP862, DOS Hebrew) is an 8-bit character encoding. It is a member of the family of MS-DOS encodings intended for use with the Hebrew language. The lower half is the same as CP437 (and ASCII), and the upper half has Hebrew letters and a few other things such as box drawing characters and some symbols (including a few Greek letters but not the whole Greek alphabet; they're apparently there for use in mathematics). Due to lack of bidirectional support in old computer systems, characters of the right-to-left-written Hebrew alphabet were often stored in visual rather than logical order, though some programs did store them in logical order.
