encoding

Hello!

Is seems to me as encoding UTF-16 and unicode is the same because I made the
following test.
I used Notepad and created an xml document
Some of the entered characters were chinese character and some were French
characters.
I then saved the document as encoding Unicode in Notepad.
In the xml document I used encoding UTF-16 in the declaration at the top of
the document.
I could now open the document in IE without any problem and shoed the
correct characters.

Unicode as a concept and UTF-16 encoding are different.

But there is a long history in the Windows world of
calling UTF-16 for Unicode.

So as long as you are talking about various Windows software
then your assumption would work.
