How to use
EAN-13 has 3 symbol sets A, B, and C. It looks like the following: *XXXXXX#CCCCCC*

 * start/end bar (as common for Code 39)
 # middle bar
 X a symbol of set A or B (see below)
 C a symbol of set C



Symbol sets
The symbol sets are placed on an international keyboard layout:

 Number row: 1234567890
 Middle character row: asdfghjkl;
 Top character row: qwertyuiop


The first digit of an EAN-13 barcode does not directly correspond to a symbol. It determines which symbol set for the following 6 digits is to be used. The following listing shows the symbol set combinations for the starting digits:

 AABABB
 AABBAB
 AABBBA
 ABAABB
 ABBAAB
 ABBBAA
 ABABAB
 ABABBA
 ABBABA

If the starting digit is 0, or if you want to encode a UPC-A, only use symbol set A.


Examples
The spaces are only inserted for clarity.

 EAN number → symbol set → What you type with the font
 2 012345 67890 3 → *AABBAB#CCCCCC* → *01sd4g#yuiope*
 2 230154 67890 1 → *AABBAB#CCCCCC* → *23;a5f#yuiopq*
 9 786789 12345 1 → *ABBABA#CCCCCC* → *7kh7k9#qwertq*
 9 789876 12345 7 → *ABBABA#CCCCCC* → *7kl8j6#qwertu*

The above examples contain all symbols, try them.


Standard
For detailed technical information download the GS1 General Specifications.

All characters are included. Use * as start/stop character.

Please leave a comment, how you used the font. It would be interesting to see whether there is demand.

Trivia: Although it is correct that 3 of the 9 stripes are wide, the name of the symbology is not called Code 3 of 9.
