The Unicode Standard defines a code set with a fixed-width, 16-bit character-encoding scheme. The advantage of Unicode is that characters from all the world's major scripts are uniformly supported. Thus it is possible to combine Arabic, French, japanese, and Russian characters in a single string.
The Unicode Standard has assigned each character witin the Standard a unique code point. Overall the standard can support 1,112,064 unique characters. Since the total number of unique markings invented by humans since the beginning of time is estimated at less than 500,000, Unicode can support every language ever written in the history of mankind.
