326If you intend to upgrade to this profile, you should be aware that it expects
327the system to be set to a Unicode locale by default; specifically that
328UNICODE="yes" is set in <path>/etc/rc.conf</path>. For this to work, you must
329have created a Unicode locale for your system to use. Please read our <uri
330link="/doc/en/utf-8.xml">UTF-8 guide</uri> to learn how to create the proper
331locale.
332</p>
333
334<p>
335Alternatively, if you do not wish to set a locale, you should specify
336UNICODE="no" in <path>/etc/rc.conf</path>, and re-emerge <c>baselayout</c> (or
337wait until your next <c>baselayout</c> update) with the <c>-unicode</c> USE
338flag. You can set <c>-unicode</c> just for <c>baselayout</c>, or you can set it
339globally for all packages by adding it to your USE variable in
340<path>/etc/make.conf</path>.
