    Labdien, Pavils Jurjans,

    you have asked:

    See the table under
    which is from an introductory lecture, in German. Note that I have replaced the
    Quarter Rest character with an in-line picture, because fonts containing that character
    are not installed, on most computers -- but with suitable fonts installed,
    the encoded strings presented in this example would be rendered as depicted
    in the 1st row of the table.

    A few screens down, there is a similar table for the encoding schemes
    (i. e. taking the byte order of longer encoding units into account):

    Still further down, there is the same example with a BOM:

    Best wishes,
