Introduction

Unicode can be implemented by different character encodings. It provides a unique number for every character, no matter what the platform, no matter what the program, no matter what the language. Each code point is a number with many digits which can be encoded in one or several code units. Code units are 8, 16, or 32 bits. This allows Unicode to represent characters in binary.
Database not support the non-Unicode character usually you have to change the Windows system locale in order to display the character correctly (eg. Chinese Simplified character).
