UTF-8 Question: e with acute accent should require two bytes, right?
Hi Folks, Consider this element: <title>My Resumé</title> Notice: é (the character "e" with an acute accent). It is U-00E9 Since its code point is greater than U+0080, it requires more than one byte. Hex E9 = Decimal 233. This has the binary: 11101001 I believe that it is encoded in UTF-8 as two bytes: 11000011 10101001 These bytes correspond to hex C3 and hex A9. Thus, é should be encoded in UTF-8 as: C3A9 The code points of the other characters (My Resum) are all less than U-0080, and so the UTF-8 encoding of those characters should be only one byte. So, this is what I believe should be the bytes: M y R e s u m é 4D79 2052 6573 756D C3A9 Do you agree? However, when I view the bytes in my hex editor I get this: M y R e s u m é 4D79 2052 6573 756D E9 Notice that é uses only one byte. Something is wrong. Here's what I think may be wrong: - the editor that I am using to display the hex values is displaying the code points and not the hex values. However, I have now tried two editors, and they both display the same thing (E9). So perhaps the editor isn't the problem. Perhaps I'm the problem, and am misunderstanding something. Help! /Roger
