  3. 3. Introduction… Computers at their most basic level just deal with numbers. They store letters, numerals and other characters by assigning a number for each one. In the pre-Unicode environment, we had single 8- bit characters sets, which limited us to 256 characters max. No single encoding could contain enough characters to cover all the languages. so hundreds of different encoding systems were developed for assigning numbers to characters. 3/11/2008 UNICODE
