9. Awesome Unicode
Myths of Unicode
- Unicode is simply a 16-bit code - Some people are under the misconception that Unicode is simply a 16-bit code where each character takes 16 bits and therefore there are 65,536 possible characters. This is not, actually, correct. It is the single most common myth about Unicode, so if you thought that, don't feel bad.
- You can use any unassigned codepoint for internal use - No. Eventually that hole will be filled with a different character. Instead use private use or noncharacters.
- Every Unicode code point represents a character - No. There are lots of nonCharacters (FFFE, FFFF, 1FFFE,…) There are also surrogate code points, private and unassigned codepoints, and control/format “characters" (RLM, ZWNJ,…)
- Unicode will run out of space - If it were linear, we would run out in 2140 AD. But it isn't linear. See http://www.unicode.org/roadmaps/
- Case mappings are 1-1 - No. They can also be:
- One-to-many: (ß → SS )
- Contextual: (…Σ ↔ …ς AND …ΣΤ… ↔ …στ… )
- Locale-sensitive: ( I ↔ ı AND İ ↔ i )

- Efficiency - The documentation must be efficient and complete.
- Unification - Where different cultures or languages use the same character, it shall be only included once. This point is
- Characters, not glyphs - Only characters, not glyphs shall be encoded. In a nutshell, glyphs are the actual graphical
- Dynamic composition - New characters can be composed of other, already standardized characters. For example, the character “Ä” can be composed of an “A” and a dieresis sign (“ ¨ ”).
- Semantics - Included characters must be well defined and distinguished from others.
- Stability - Once defined characters shall never be removed or their codepoints reassigned. In the case of an error, a codepoint shall be deprecated.
- Plain Text - Characters in the standard are text and never mark-up or metacharacters.
- Convertibility - Every other used encoding shall be representable in terms of a Unicode encoding.
