What is Unicode?


As an example, “A” could be read as 1, “a” as 2, and “#” equals 45. This character encoding scheme may work perfectly well for one system but if another system had to read it then it may not understand it at all, so it would need to understand the users encoding scheme as well.

To solve this problem a standard was created, this means that all computers can display the same characters.

So was born the Unicode Standard, which was developed in conjunction with the Universal Coded Character Set.
