We will cover the concepts of representing scripts from different languages, and an introduction to Unicode. We will delve into the details on character encodings such as EBCDIC and UTF-8, and discuss how Java deals with Unicode, including gotchas that can trip up programmers. We will not cover fonts, printing and so on. You will come away with a deeper understanding of best practices to read and write files and sockets, and save text data to a database.
