Unicode adapted into 8-bit bytes. The standard character set encoding for LDAPv3, and used by some LDAPv2 clients (notably Netscape). A key advantage of UTF-8 is that its regular US ASCII characters (A–Z, 0–9, etc.) are identical to US ASCII, Mac OS Roman, Latin-1, etc.).
See Unicode Transformation Format, 8-bit.
(n.) File System Safe Universal Transformation Format.
A way of encoding Unicode characters for use on computer systems such as Unix and Linux.
UCS Transformation Format, 8-bit. An X/Open standardized encoding which includes all of the characters represented in ISO/IEC 10646, such that no null bytes (signaling End of File on a UNIX file system) are imbedded in the data stream. The encoding uses one to six bytes to represent a character. The encoding can be used to support a Unicode charmap for an XPG4 locale. See also ISO/IEC 10646 and Unicode.
Unicode Transformation Format 8 (UTF-8) is the preferred UTF for the Web. ASCII characters are encoded in single bytes, European and Near Eastern characters in 2-byte sequences, South and East Asian characters in 3-byte sequences.
UCS Transformation Format, 8-bit form. UTF-8 is a variable length encoding of the Unicode Standard using 8-bit sequences, where the high bits indicate which part of the sequence a byte belongs to.
character encoding form for Unicode characters. Each 21-bit Unicode code point is represented using one to four 8-bit code unit
Unicode Transformation Format, 8-bit encoding form, which is designed for ease of use with existing ASCII-based systems.
Unicode transformation format - 8. A byte-oriented encoding form specified by the Unicode Standard.
an 8-bit encoding of the Unicode character set. Interarchy uses UTF-8 throughout, although it can convert to/from other character sets when dealing with FTP or HTTP. see the Character Sets section.
The encoding for Unicode characters, where each character is represented by one, two, or three bytes.
a Unicode multi-byte encoding that is backward compatible with ASCII
A variable-width encoding of UCS-2 which uses sequences of 1, 2, or 3 bytes per character. Characters from 0-127 (the 7-bit ASCII characters) are encoded with one byte, characters from 128-2047 require two bytes, and characters from 2048-65535 require three bytes. The Oracle character set name for this is UTF-8 (for the Unicode 2.1 standard). The standard has left room for expansion to support the UCS4 characters with sequences of 4, 5, and 6 bytes per character.
Unicode character encoding is an evolution of the ASCII set to permit support of a greater number of alphanumeric characters including those with diacritical marks such as accents. More information on UTF-8 is available at: Wikipedia For more information... WordCloud
The 8-bit encoding of Unicode. It is a variable-width encoding. One Unicode character can be 1 byte, 2 bytes, 3 bytes, or 4 bytes in UTF-8 encoding. Characters from the European scripts are represented in either 1 or 2 bytes. Characters from most Asian scripts are represented in 3 bytes. Supplementary characters are represented in 4 bytes.
One of the optional encodings of Unicode. Uses a variable number of bytes in the encoding for different character ranges.
A variable-width 8-bit encoding of Unicode that uses sequences of 1, 2, 3, or 4 bytes for each character. Characters from 0-127 (the 7-bit ASCII characters) are encoded with one byte, characters from 128-2047 require two bytes, characters from 2048-65535 require three bytes, and characters beyond 65535 require four bytes. The Oracle character set name for this is AL32UTF8 (for the Unicode 3.1 standard).
UTF-8 is an 8-bit character set specified by Unicode Technical Committee. UTF-8 includes the first 128 characters of ASCII.
Unicode provides a unique number for every character, no matter what the platform, no matter what the program, no matter what the language. UTF-8 is the format for the ISO 10646 Universal Character Set which is a coded character set with more than 40,000 defined elements.
A subset (albeit a large one) of the full Unicode character set that incorporates the macronised long Maori vowels.
An encoding for Unicode characters (and more generally, UCS characters) commonly used for transmission and storage. It is a multibyte format in which different characters require different numbers of bytes to be represented.
An encoding form of Unicode that supports ASCII for backward compatibility and covers the characters for most languages in the world. See also Unicode.
A method of encoding Unicode using 8 bits. Other methods include UTF-7, UTF-16 and UTF-32. UTF-8 is the most dominant method of encoding Unicode characers, but UTF-16 is becoming more common.
an encoding form for storing Unicode codepoints in terms of 8-bit bytes. Characters are encoding listing sequences of 1-4 bytes. Characters in the ASCII character set are all represented using a single byte. See http://www.unicode.org/unicode/faq/utf_bom.html.
UTF-8 (8-bit UCS/Unicode Transformation Format) is a variable-length character encoding for Unicode. It is able to represent any universal character in the Unicode standard, yet the initial encoding of byte codes and character assignments for UTF-8 is consistent with ASCII (requiring little or no change for software that handles ASCII but preserves other values). For these reasons, it is steadily becoming the preferred encoding for e-mail, web pages, and other places where characters are stored or streamed.
