The GEO Working Group has published the article:

	Introducing Character Sets and Encodings
	http://www.w3.org/International/getting-started/characters
	By Richard Ishida



This is the first in a series of articles aimed at those who are new to internationalization. These pages will introduce people to key internationalization topics and tasks, and direct them towards articles or resources on the W3C Internationalization subsite that will take them to the next level of understanding.

This document introduces topics in the general area of character sets, encodings, escapes, etc.

The document is linked from a new 'Getting Started' page that also explains various ways to find information on the W3C Internationalization subsite, and points to some key definitions.

The "Getting Started" page and these "Introducing..." pages aim to provide newcomers with a gentle pathway into the many and varied resources on the site, rather than expecting them to work out for themselves how to get an overview of the topic and decide which of the resources to read first. These pages do not go through the review stages typical of technical articles, and will be modified and improved over the weeks following their publication.
