I have had to deal with this issue as well. Part of the answer depends on
what percentage of data must be represented outside of your normal language.
For example, if 99% of my data could be stored as US ASCII, I might just
store all of my data that way and use escapes for the few special
The other part deals with what kind of programming can be done on your chip.
Naturally, you can have straight Unicode (even compressed) and
decode/uncompress on the fly.

Space Unicode Takes
I have a question about how much space Unicode takes up. I am working on a
HTML project in multiple languages. Each of these web pages have to be
stored on a chip with limited space. Is there any way to "compact" the HTML
scripts in order to save space on the chip? Or is there a different call
number for a character which will take up less space in hex? It would be
greatly appreciated if the email was answered.
