| What is the difference between CP1251 and some ISO 8859 coding system?

>From Unicode Demystified, Richard Gillam, ISBN 0-201-70052-2, page 41:
  Windows code page 1252, the Western European encoding for Windows,
  for example, is a superset of ISO 8859-1. It includes all of the
  Latin-1 characters, but then fills the C1 space with additional
  printing characters.

I believe the same is true for code page 1251.

The C1 space in ISO 8859 is reserved for control characters.
