Hi folks,

  Does anyone have experience or information on the
compression of text data in Unicode? I would be
interested to hear if any vendors compress text data
stored in Unicode and how much space savings they
have experienced. I would be interesting in hearing
how various compression routines do with respect to
Unicode data.

  Thanks in advance.
