The real question is whether unicode is even relevant now that the UTF
series is available.
Bob, UTF is unicode (Unicode Transformation Format)
Yes, Ashley is correct. UTF-8 is Unicode, as is UTF-16 and UTF-32,
which all use different a number of bytes for each code point. Both
UTF-8 and UTF-16 are variable length whereas UTF-32 is a fixed length
of four bytes per code point.
As is my understanding, UTF-8 will accommodate all the languages
(glyphs) of the world and then some. It will be a while before we
need UTF-16 or UTF-32 but those are just a larger super-sets.
In any event, I always use UTF-8 in all my encoding.
