29     <title>What is a Character Encoding?</title>
30     <body>
31    
32     <p>
33     Computers do not understand text themselves. Instead, every character is
34     represented by a number. Traditionally, each set of numbers used to represent
35     alphabets and characters (known as a coding system, encoding or character set)
36     was limited in size due to limitations in computer hardware.

41     <section>
42     <title>The History of Character Encodings</title>
43     <body>
44    
45     <p>
46     The most common (or at least the most widely accepted) character set is
47     <b>ASCII</b> (American Standard Code for Information Interchange). It is widely
48     held that ASCII is the most successful software standard ever. Modern ASCII
49     was standardised in 1986 (ANSI X3.4, RFC 20, ISO/IEC 646:1991, ECMA-6) by the
50     American National Standards Institute.
51     </p>
52    
53     <p>
54     ASCII is strictly seven-bit, meaning that it uses bit patterns representable
55     with seven binary digits, which provides a range of 0 to 127 in decimal. These
56     include 32 non-visible control characters, most between 0 and 31, with the
57     final control character, DEL or delete at 127. Characters 32 to 126 are
58     visible characters: a space, punctuation marks, Latin letters and numbers.
59     </p>
60    
61     <p>
62     The eighth bit in ASCII was originally used as a parity bit for error checking.
63     If this is not desired, it is left as 0. This means that, with ASCII, each
64     character is represented by a single byte.
65     </p>
66    
67     <p>
68     Although ASCII was enough for communication in modern English, in other
69     European languages that include accented characters, things were not so easy.
70     The ISO 8859 standards were developed to meet these needs. They were backwards
71     compatible with ASCII, but instead of leaving the eighth bit blank, they used
72     it to allow another 127 characters in each encoding. ISO 8859's limitations
73     soon came to light, and there are currently 15 variants of the ISO 8859
74     standard (8859-1 through to 8859-15). Outside of the ASCII-compatible byte
75     range of these character sets, there is often conflict between the letters
76     represented by each byte. To complicate interoperability between character
77     encodings further, Windows-1252 is used in some versions of Microsoft Windows
78     instead for Western European languages. This is a superset of ISO 8859-1,
79     however it is different in several ways. These sets do all retain ASCII
80     compatibility, however.
81     </p>
82    
83     <p>
84     The necessary development of completely different single-byte encodings for
85     non-Latin alphabets, such as EUC (Extended Unix Coding) which is used for
86     Japanese and Korean (and to a lesser extent Chinese) created more confusion,
87     while other operating systems still used different character sets for the same
88     languages, for example, Shift-JIS and ISO-2022-JP. Users wishing to view
89     cyrillic glyphs had to choose between KOI8-R for Russian and Bulgarian or
90     KOI8-U for Ukrainian, as well as all the other cyrillic encodings such as the
91     unsuccessful ISO 8859-5, and the common Windows-1251 set. All of these
92     character sets broke most compatibility with ASCII (although KOI8 encodings
93     place cyrillic characters in Latin order, so in case the eighth bit is
94     stripped, text is still decipherable on an ASCII terminal through case-reversed
95     transliteration.)
96     </p>
97    
98     <p>
99     This has led to confusion, and also to an almost total inability for
100     multilingual communication, especially across different alphabets. Enter
101     Unicode.

107     <title>What is Unicode?</title>
108     <body>
109    
110     <p>
111     Unicode throws away the traditional single-byte limit of character sets, and
112     even with two bytes per-character this allows a maximum 65,536 characters.
113     Although this number is extremely high when compared to seven-bit and eight-bit
114     encodings, it is still not enough for a character set designed to be used for
115     symbols and scripts used only by scholars, and symbols that are only used in
116     mathematics and other specialised fields.
117     </p>
118    
119     <p>
120     Unicode has been mapped in many different ways, but the two most common are
121     <b>UTF</b> (Unicode Transformation Format) and <b>UCS</b> (Universal Character
122     Set). A number after UTF indicates the number of bits in one unit, while the
123     number after UCS indicates the number of bytes. UTF-8 has become the most
124     widespread means for the interchange of Unicode text as a result of its
125     eight-bit clean nature, and it is the subject of this document.

131     <title>UTF-8</title>
132     <body>
133    
134     <p>
135     UTF-8 is a variable-length character encoding, which in this instance means
136     that it uses 1 to 4 bytes per symbol. So, the first UTF-8 byte is used for
137     encoding ASCII, giving the character set full backwards compatibility with
138     ASCII. UTF-8 means that ASCII and Latin characters are interchangeable with
139     little increase in the size of the data, because only the first bit is used.
140     Users of Eastern alphabets such as Japanese, who have been assigned a higher
141     byte range are unhappy, as this results in as much as a 50% redundancy in their
142     data.
143     </p>

147     <section>
148     <title>What UTF-8 Can Do for You</title>
149     <body>
150    
151     <p>
152     UTF-8 allows you to work in a standards-compliant and internationally accepted
153     multilingual environment, with a comparitively low data redundancy. UTF-8 is
154     the preferred way for transmitting non-ASCII characters over the Internet,
155     through Email, IRC or almost any other medium. Despite this, many people regard
156     UTF-8 in online communication as abusive. It is always best to be aware of the
157     attitude towards UTF-8 in a specific channel, mailing list or Usenet group
158     before using <e>non-ASCII</e> UTF-8.

167     <section>
168     <title>Finding or Creating UTF-8 Locales</title>
169     <body>
170    
171     <p>
172     Now that you understand the principles behind Unicode, you're ready to start
173     using UTF-8 with your system.
174     </p>
175    
176     <p>
177     The preliminary requirement for UTF-8 is to have a version of glibc installed
178     that has national language support. The recommend means to do this is the
179     <path>/etc/locales.build</path> file in combination with the <c>userlocales</c>
180     USE flag. It is beyond the scope of this document to explain the usage of this
181     file though, luckily, the usage of this file is well documented in the comments
182     within it. It is also explained in the <uri
183     link="/doc/en/guide-localization.xml#doc_chap3_sect3"> Gentoo Localisation
184     Guide</uri>.
185     </p>
186    
187     <p>
188     Next, we'll need to decide whether a UTF-8 locale is already available for our
189     language, or whether we need to create one.
190     </p>
191    
192     <pre caption="Checking for an existing UTF-8 locale">
193     <comment>(Replace "en_GB" with your desired locale setting)</comment>

195     en_GB
196     en_GB.utf8
197     </pre>
198    
199     <p>
200     From the output of this command line, we need to take the result with a suffix
201     similar to <c>.utf8</c>. If there is no result with a suffix similar to
202     <c>.utf8</c>, we need to create a UTF-8 compatible locale.
203     </p>
204    
205     <note>
206     Only execute the following code listing if you do not have a UTF-8 locale
207     available for your language.

218     <title>Setting the Locale</title>
219     <body>
220    
221     <p>
222     Although by now you might be determined to use UTF-8 system wide, the author
223     does not recommend setting UTF-8 for the root user. Instead, it is best to set
224     the locale in your user's <path>~/.profile</path> (or, if you are using a C
225     shell, <path>~/.login</path>).
226     </p>
227    
228     <note>
229     If you are not sure which file to use, use <path>~/.profile</path>. Also, if
230     you are unsure which code listing to use, use the Bourne version.
231     </note>
232    
233     <pre caption="Setting the locale with environment variables (Bourne version)">

242    
243     <p>
244     Now, logout and back in to apply the change. We want these environment
245     variables in our entire environment, so it is best to logout and back in, or at
246     the very least to source <path>~/.profile</path> or <path>~/.login</path> in
247     the console from which you have started other processes.

258    
259     <p>
260     When Unicode first started gaining momentum in the software world, multibyte
261     character sets were not well suited to languages like C, in which many of the
262     day-to-day programs people use are written. Even today, some programs are not
263     able to handle UTF-8 properly. Fortunately, most are!

272     <p>
273     There are several NLS options in the Linux kernel configuration menu, but it is
274     important to not become confused! For the most part, the only thing you need to
275     do is to build UTF-8 NLS support into your kernel, and change the default NLS
276     option to utf8.

328    
329     <p>
330     To enable UTF-8 on the console, you should edit <path>/etc/rc.conf</path> and
331     set <c>UNICODE="yes"</c>, and also read the comments in that file -- it is

384    
385     <p>
386     All of the major desktop environments have full Unicode support, and will
387     require no further setup than what has already been covered in this guide. This
388     is because the underlying graphical toolkits (Qt or GTK+2) are UTF-8 aware.
389     Subsequently, all applications running on top of these toolkits should be
390     UTF-8-aware out of the box.
391     </p>
392    
393     <p>
394     The exceptions to this rule come in Xlib and GTK+1. GTK+1 requires a
395     iso-10646-1 FontSpec in the ~/.gtkrc, for example
396     <c>-misc-fixed-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1</c>. Also, applications using
397     Xlib or Xaw will need to be given a similar FontSpec, otherwise they will not
398     work.
399     </p>
400    
401     <note>
402     If you have a version of the gnome1 control center around, use that instead.
403     Pick any iso10646-1 font from there.
404     </note>

413    
414     <p>
415     If an application has support for both a Qt and GTK+2 GUI, the GTK+2 GUI will
416     generally give better results with Unicode.

426 swift 1.2 <c>x11-base/xorg-x11</c> has far better support for Unicode than XFree86
427     and is <e>highly</e> recommended.
428 neysx 1.1 </impo>
429    
430     <p>
431     TrueType fonts have support for Unicode, and most of the fonts that ship with
432     Xorg have impressive character support, although, obviously, not every single
433     glyph available in Unicode has been created for that font. To build fonts
434     (including the Bitstream Vera set) with support for East Asian letters with X,
435     make sure you have the <c>cjk</c> USE flag set. Many other applications utilise
436     this flag, so it may be worthwhile to add it as a permanent USE flag.
437     </p>
438    
439     <p>
440     Also, several font packages in Portage are Unicode aware.

452    
453     <p>
454     Window managers not built on GTK or Qt generally have very good Unicode
455     support, as they often use the Xft library for handling fonts. If your window
456     manager does not use Xft for fonts, you can still use the FontSpec mentioned in
457     the previous section as a Unicode font.
458     </p>
459    
460     <p>
461     Terminal emulators that use Xft and support Unicode are harder to come by.
462     Aside from Konsole and gnome-terminal, the best options in Portage are
463     <c>x11-terms/rxvt-unicode</c>, <c>xfce-extra/terminal</c>,
464     <c>app-gnustep/terminal</c>, <c>x11-terms/mlterm</c>, <c>x11-terms/mrxvt</c> or
465     plain <c>x11-terms/xterm</c> when built with the <c>unicode</c> USE flag and
466     invoked as <c>uxterm</c>. <c>app-misc/screen</c> supports UTF-8 too, when
467     invoked as <c>screen -u</c> or the following is put into the

488     Nano currently does not provide support for UTF-8, although it has been planned
489     for a long time. With luck, this will change in future. At the time of writing,
490     UTF-8 support is in Nano's CVS, and should be included in the next release.

500     Currently, <c>bash</c> provides full Unicode support through the GNU readline
501     library. Z Shell users are in a somewhat worse position -- no parts of the
502     shell have Unicode support, although there is a concerted effort to add
503     multibyte character set support underway at the moment.

507     The C shell, <c>tcsh</c> and <c>ksh</c> do not provide UTF-8 support at all.

538     The Mutt mail user agent has very good Unicode support. To use UTF-8 with Mutt,
539     put the following in your <path>~/.muttrc</path>:
540     </p>
541    
542     <pre caption="~/.muttrc for UTF-8">
543     set send_charset="utf8" <comment>(outgoing character set)</comment>
544     set charset="utf8" <comment>(display character set)</comment>
545     </pre>
546    
547     <note>
548     You may still see '?' in mail you read with Mutt. This is a result of people
549     using Latin (ISO 8859) or another charset for email transmission. It is best to
550     tell them to use UTF-8 for mail, and point them to the IETF RFC 2277 (see
551     References at the end of this document). Also note that in some lists,
552     subscribers may not like UTF-8. Be sure that the group or person you are
553     communicating with does not mind UTF-8.

568     There are numerous UTF-8 test websites around. <c>net-www/w3m</c>,
569     <c>net-www/links</c>, <c>net-www/elinks</c>, <c>net-www/lynx</c> and all
570 cam 1.3 Mozilla based browsers (including Firefox) support UTF-8. Konqueror and Opera
571     have full UTF-8 support too.

573    
574     <p>
575     When using one of the text-only web browsers, make absolutely sure you are
576     using a Unicode-aware terminal.
577     </p>
578    
579     <p>
580     If you see certain characters displayed as boxes with letters or numbers
581     inside, this means that your font does not have a character for the symbol or
582     glyph that the UTF-8 wants. Instead, it displays a box with the hex code of the
583     UTF-8 symbol.

600     <title>Input Methods</title>
601     <body>
602    
603     <p>
604     <e>Dead keys</e> may be used to input characters in X that are not included on
605     your keyboard. These work by pressing your right Alt key (or in some countries,
606     AltGr) and an optional key from the non-alphabetical section of the keyboard to
607     the left of the return key at once, releasing them, and then pressing a letter.
608     The dead key should modify it. Input can be further modified by using the Shift
609     key at the same time as pressing the AltGr and modifier.
610     </p>
611    
612     <p>
613     To enable dead keys in X, you need a layout that supports it. Most European
614     layouts already have dead keys with the default variant. However, this is not
615     true of North American layouts. Although there is a degree of inconsistency
616     between layouts, the easiest solution seems to be to use a layout in the form
617     "en_US" rather than "us", for example. The layout is set in
618     <path>/etc/X11/xorg.conf</path> like so:
619     </p>
620    
621     <pre caption="/etc/X11/xorg.conf snippet">
622     Section "InputDevice"
623     Identifier "Keyboard0"
624     Driver "kbd"
625     Option "XkbLayout" "en_US" <comment># Rather than just "us"</comment>
626     <comment>(Other Xkb options here)</comment>
627     EndSection
628     </pre>
629    
630     <note>
631     The preceding change only needs to be applied if you are using a North American
632     layout, or another layout where dead keys do not seem to be working. European
633     users should have working dead keys as is.
634     </note>
635    
636     <p>
637     This change will come into effect when your X server is restarted. To apply the
638     change now, use the <c>setxkbmap</c> tool, for example, <c>setxkbmap en_US</c>.
639     </p>
640    
641     <p>
642     It is probably easiest to describe dead keys with examples. Although the
643     results are locale dependent, the concepts should remain the same regardless of
644     locale. The examples contain UTF-8, so to view them you need to either tell
645     your browser to view the page as UTF-8, or have a UTF-8 locale already
646     configured.
647     </p>
648    
649     <p>
650     When I press AltGr and [ at once, release them, and then press a, 'ä' is
651     produced. When I press AltGr and [ at once, and then press e, 'ë' is produced.
652     When I press AltGr and ; at once, 'á' is produced, and when I press AltGr and ;
653     at once, release them, and then press e, 'é' is produced.
654     </p>
655    
656     <p>
657     By pressing AltGr, Shift and [ at once, releasing them, and then pressing a, a
658     Scandinavian 'å' is produced. Similarly, when I press AltGr, Shift and [ at
659     once, release <e>only</e> the [, and then press it again, '˚' is produced.
660     Although it looks like one, this (U+02DA) is not the same as a degree symbol
661     (U+00B0). This works for other accents produced by dead keys — AltGr and [,
662     releasing only the [, then pressing it again makes '¨'.
663     </p>
664    
665     <p>
666     AltGr can be used with alphabetical keys alone. For example, AltGr and m, a
667     Greek lower-case letter mu is produced: 'µ'.
