Error description

  • GB18030 is a standard of encoding in China. The latest version
    of GB18030 is GB18030-2005, which not only contains all 27533
    characters in GB18030-2000, but also contains Unicode CJK
    Ext-B(i.e. CJK Unified Ideographs Extension B) which contains
    additional 42711 characters.
    
    Currently, all of these 42711 characters cannot be inserted into
    a database with codeset GB18030 correctly, they will be
    converted and stored as 0x'8430C432' in database, which is not
    correct.
