Term Definition
UnicodeA universal encoding scheme for characters and text. The goal of unicode is to enable the use of all characters for all languages of the world. Unicode supports a 16-bit character code for a possible 65,000 characters, as well as an extension of the 16-bit code called UTF-16 that allows for over one million characters and is sufficient for all known encoding requirements, including all known past and present written language characters in the world. Contrast that to the 8-bit 256 character limit of ASCII. Unicode is the default encoding of HTML and XML.
