FAQ
Hi,

Its very interesting with some data. For example,
the micro (u looking character), if stored in
USASCII7, gets converted to a number 6 in UTF-8
(without conversion and across db_links). Therefore,
1 micro gram (USASCII7) becomes 16 grams (UTF-8).
Much more fun than ?nre?d?ble st?ff.

Oracle's character set conversion utilities are a
must.

Regards,

Mike Thomas
