    what I found on the web. You might start your search from there:
    UTF-7: Not from Unicode. An IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) RFC 2152 (Request for Comment) of 1997 with status INFORMATIONAL. RFC 2152 UTF-7 (

    Maybe the status has changed since 1997.

    It would be nice if you do not stay anonymous.

    Best regards

    I got some problems understanding UTF-7.

    1. Is this format directly encoding the Unicode Codecharts, or an encoded UTF-version?

    2. Can you encode the full range of Unicode or just up to hexFFFF?

    If 1. is answered, that it encodes another UTF-Format:

      3. When it encodes a stream, does this format need any information, with what UTF-X Format the string has been encoded?

      4. Can you use this just for UTF-16 (BE/LE) or for any UTF format?

    5. Can somebody tell me where to get an easy to read & complete description of the UTF-7 Format??
