The ISO and IUE spectra of the elliptical nebulae are presented. These spectra are combined with the spectra in the visual wavelength region to obtain a complete, extinction corrected, spectrum. The chemical composition of the nebulae is then calculated and compared to previous determinations. A discussion is also given of the exciting stars of the nebulae, and possible evolutionary effects.
