Parsing Unicode strings

    Is the Unicode-encoded character string self-descriptive? That is, do
    I need a priori knowledge that it is encoded as, for example, UTF-8
    rather than UTF-32? Or, by examining the first byte (or first few
    bytes) can I determine the encoding?

    I didn't see anything on this topic in the FAQ.
