    As others have stated, there is no "portuguese unicode character set".
    Period. There is only one Unicode.

    Markets and software products and keyboards and fonts work to define
    characters to use. Unicode does not really do this.


    Sorry for the confusion,
    I was not able to use the right term.
    What I wanted to mean is, codes of all characters of Portuguese language.
