CloudFlare suffered a massive security issue affecting all of its customers, including Rosetta Code. All passwords not changed since February 19th 2017 have been expired, and session cookie longevity will be reduced until late March.--Michael Mol (talk) 05:15, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

Unicode is a mapping from characters in a very large set of languages to code points, together with a set of descriptive metadata about those code points (so that you can know whether they are alphabetic, numeric, symbolic, white-space, etc.)

A number of different mechanisms are used for mapping this to a sequence of bytes. The single most important one (because it embeds ASCII and so is easy to deploy on existing systems) is UTF-8.
