ABOUT UNICODE

The evolution of Unicode began more than a decade ago when the Unicode Consortium and an ISO working group set out to create a universal character set. As Unicode evolved over the years, it expanded to include more and more characters. Unicode 3.1, the most current version available, includes 94,140 characters—a far cry from the days of ASCII (see Figure 1).
