<character> A particular mapping between characters and
byte strings, i.e. the combination of a particular
character encoding (which maps between byte strings and
integers) and a particular coded character set (which maps
between integers and characters).

directly as single-byte values), or UTF-8 (the Unicode
coded character set, encoded with an 8-bit transformation
The character repertoire is the complete set of all
characters in the character set.
