unicode
The Unicode standard is a fixed-width, uniform encoding scheme from written characters and text. The Unicode character encoding treats alphabetic characters, ideographic characters, and symbols identically, which means they can be used in any mixture and with equal facility. The Unicode Standard is molded on the ASCII character set, but uses 16 bit encoding to support full multilingual text. No escape sequence or control code is required to specify any character in any language. See the TUT sentence for application ofUnicode within the NMEA 0183 standard.
