The following page has been changed by Deborah Cawkwell:
http://esw.w3.org/topic/geoUnicodeConsiderationsWhenUpgrading


The comment on the change is:
Page weight & RFC

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  Slightly heavier, but given that a large proportion of a web page is HTML mark-up, where characters remain 1 byte, then this is quite negligible.
  
+ '''QUERY FOR (DRC): did you mean the following RFC? [http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3629.txt?number=3629 RFC: UTF-8, a transformation format of ISO 10646] I couldn't find the useful bit you mentioned re weight. Could you point me to it. ALSO QUERY FOR ALL - should we point to a page weight tool here.'''
+ 
     * Latin languages: characters, eg, e acute, outside the ASCII range (128 codepoints), are represented by one byte in ISO-8859-1, but typically two bytes in UTF-8, so a small, but acceptable, increase in page size should be expected.
  
     * Characters that do not fall into the ASCII range, such as Chinese, Arabic, Russian, may use 2 or even 3 bytes. Chinese encodings already use more than 1 byte per character with legacy encodings, where they use double bytes.
