Will this feature allow the font list to finally display fonts in their own font style?

This feature does not affect that component of the UI.

Great new feature that will not only make structuring files more useful, but it will also add the chance for a bit more honour and fun which is just as important!

To get that right,

UTF8 is a UTF16 without emojis ?

 

I'am to old for that Emoji thing.

I only use ASCII Smileys, especially those who don't smile ;)

Unicode is the ability, UTF-* is the format of the bits and bytes to make it happen.  No real difference in what they can hold, only in how it is represented internally.

Thanks Rick,

 

So also UTF8 has enough space to handle Emojis ?

I am thinking of other Apps to export to, which at one time became UTF8 support.

By analogy you can put text in a Word document, or text in a PDF; the person you hand it to needs to know what file type they're getting to know whether they can handle it.

 

Essentially UTF8 starts with one byte for an ordinary character (so is somewhat compatible with ascii) and it grows to 2, 3, or 4 bytes as needed to fit a specific extended char. UTF16 starts with 2 bytes and doesn't ever pretend to be ascii.
