Unicode is a standard used in computer software for encoding human readable characters in digital form. The most common encoding is the ASCII code, which can encode a maximum of 127 characters, which is enough for the English language. As computer use spread to other languages, the shortcomings of ASCII became more and more apparent. There are many other languages with many other characters; Asian languages in particular contain very many characters.
