ECMA was actively involved in developing these sets and published them
as parallel standard (ECMA-94, second edition, 1986).
ECMA had a very close working relation with ISO, some of that history
can be tracked down in snippets on the web; but sadly, most of the
active participant in developing the early editions of the 8859 series
would have passed away by now.
