ISO 2047 (Information processing -- Graphical representations for the control characters of the 7-bit coded character set) ISO/IEC 646 describes a graphical representation of the control characters for debugging purposes, such as may be found in the character generator of a computer terminal; it also establishes a two-letter abbreviation of each control character. In addition, RFC 1345 "Character Mnemonics & Character Sets" is cited as the ISO 2047 two-letter abbreviation of the control character. ISO 2047, ECMA-17 in Europe, GB/T 3911-1983 in China, that corresponds to KS X 1010 in Korea (formerly KS C 5713) has been established as a standard. It was enacted "graphical representation of information exchange capabilities for character" JIS X 0209:1976 (former JIS C 6227) in Japan, and was abolished on January 20, 2010.
Offshore (1979) is a novel by Penelope Fitzgerald. It won the Booker Prize for that year. It recalls her time spent on boats on the Thames in Battersea. The novel explores the liminality of people who do not belong to the land or the sea, but are somewhere in between. The epigraph, "che mena il vento, e che batte la pioggia, e che s'incontran con si aspre lingue" ("whom the wind drives, or whom the rain beats, or those who clash with such bitter tongues") comes from Canto XI of Dante's Inferno.
"Offshore", when used relative to hydrocarbons, refers to an oil, natural gas or condensate field that is under the sea, or to activities or operations carried out in relation to such a field. There are various types of platform used in the development of offshore oil and gas fields, and subsea facilities.
