This week's book giveaway is in the Performance forum. We're giving away four copies of The Java Performance Companion and have Charlie Hunt, Monica Beckwith, Poonam Parhar, & Bengt Rutisson on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm just learning Java now, I read that Java uses Unicode, slightly over 50,000 characters and still supports ASCII 127 characters. I wrote a quick script to display all the unicode characters and got question marks for it. I rewrote it for 127 characters of Unicode and got it to display correctly.
I take it that Unicode only displays the characters loaded in your O/S??? Just curious actually.

Yes, your OS has to support Unicode as well in order to display the characters that don't coincide with the ASCII character set. So what OS are you using?
