Text supported in unicode encoding (UTF-8)



Some models in IBM Incentive Compensation Management are in unicode. What exactly is supported in UTF-8 encoding?


UTF-8 supports any unicode character, which pragmatically means any natural language (Coptic, Sinhala, Phonecian, Cherokee etc), as well as many non-spoken languages (Music notation, mathematical symbols, APL).

The stated objective of the Unicode consortium is to encompass all communications. The few exceptions which are not supported well (like Klingon) usually have a roman-alphabet equivalent and/or have an unofficial private unicode code page.

If you're concerned about a particular language, you're better off asking about that exact and particular one.
