6 - Unicode encoding layout for the BMP (Plane 0). Unicode rules, however, are strict about code-point assignment-each code point has a distinct representation. There are also many cases in which Unicode deliberately does not provide code points. Variants of existing characters are not given separate code points, because to do so would represent duplicate encoding of what is underlying the same character. Examples are font variants (such as bold and italic) and glyph variants, which basically are different ways of representing the same characters.

The starting byte of a chain of bytes in a UTF-8 encoded character tells how many bytes are used to encode that character. All the following bytes start with the mark "10" and the xxx's denote the binary representation of the encoding within the given range. Table 3-3 Relationship between Unicode code points and a UTF-8-encoded character. In UTF-8, the first byte indicates the number of bytes to follow in a multibyte-encoded sequence. Unicode Range 0x00000000-0x0000007F 0x00000080-0x000007FF 0x00000800-0x0000FFFF 0x00010000-0x001FFFFF UTF-8-Encoded Bytes 0 xxxxxxx 110 xxxxx 10 xxxxxx 1110 xxxx 10 xxxxxx 10 xxxxxx 11110 xxx 10 xxxxxx 10 xxxxxx 10 xxxxxx Using this approach, once encoded in UTF-8, would become 0xE9 0x99 0xA2, which in binary is 0x11101001 0x10011001 0x10100010.

Avoid the trap of likening surrogate pairs to the older East Asian double-byte encodings (DBCS). Instead, centralize the needed string operations in a few subroutines. These subroutines should take surrogate pairs into consideration, but should also handle combining characters and other characters that require special handling. A well-written application can confine surrogate processing to just a few such routines. • Don't use UTF-8 for compression-it actually expands the size of the data for most languages.
