    Report Type: UTF-16 & UTF-32

    I haven't been able to find a an answer in the FAQ or googling the site to these questions...

    1.Is it true that there are many ways of encoding the same character in UTF-16? Do you know if common regular expression search functions like those of .NET or Perl will find a character regardless of in what fashion it was encoded?

    2.Why is there now UTF-32? Are there even that many characters in the world that they need 32-bit representation?
