What is Unicode?

October 2nd, 2008 joconner No comments

Unicode is a character set standard. This particular standard assigns a unique number to every character used around the globe, regardless of written and spoken language, computing platform, or application. Unicode includes all the characters used from other more limited character sets. Prior to Unicode, smaller character sets assigned character values differently from each other. Unicode unifies all other character sets; every character gets its own, unique value.

You can get more information about Unicode from the Unicode Home Page.
