LOCALESIGNATURE info  Overview  Group

The LOCALESIGNATURE structure contains extended font-signature information, including two code-page bitfields (CPBs) that define the default and supported character sets and code-pages. This structure is typically used to represent the relationships between font coverage and locales.

typedef struct tagLOCALESIGNATURE {
DWORD lsUsb[4];
DWORD lsCsbDefault[2];
DWORD lsCsbSupported[2];


A 128-bit Unicode subset bitfield (USB) identifying up to 126 Unicode subranges. Each bit, except the two most significant bits, represents a single subrange. The most significant bit is always 1 and identifies the bitfield as a font signature; the second most significant is reserved and must be 0. Unicode subranges are numbered in accordance with the ISO 10646 standard.
A code-page bitfield that indicates the default OEM and ANSI code-pages for a locale. The code-pages may be identified by separate bits or a single bit representing a common ANSI and OEM code-page. For a list of possible bitfield values, see Code-Page Bitfields.
A code-page bitfield that indicates all the code-pages in which the locale can be supported. For a list of possible bitfield values, see Code-Page Bitfields.
