Quick Reference

Abbrev. for 16-bit Unicode Transformation Format. A method of encoding Unicode codepoints using two-byte unsigned integers; either one or two such integers is used depending on the codepoint. Whether the most- or least-significant byte comes first varies between implementations and is generally indicated by a byte-order mark.
