Differences between UTF-2 and UTF-8?

Anyone got any experience/thoughts on using the multi-byte character
set AL24UTFFSS which is the Oracle Unicode multi-byte character set for
Oracle 7.3 ?

The encoding system used is UTF-2 according to Oracle. UTF-8 support is in
Oracle 8. I've done some simple experiments with Netscape 4.04 specifying
UTF-8 as the encoding technique and it seems to work OK.

Does anyone know what the difference is between UTF-2 and UTF-8 ?
