Jump to user comments
character, standard (UCS, ISO/IEC 10646) A 1993 ISO and
IEC standard character set, also known as "Universal
Multiple-Octet Coded Character Set".
UCS comes in a 16-bit variant called UCS-2 and a 32-bit
variant called UCS-4, which is composed of 16-bit UCS-2
"planes". So far only one 16-bit plane has been defined,
which is known as the Basic Multilingual Plane.
