    unicode

    when create db : utf-8 has to be specified for codepage
    different collating sequences are available, depending on need.
    mind the length of char fields, as 1 character can be multiple bytes. some cols should be defined longer than the number of needed characters
    also mind the substr/length function
    or use graphic/var graphic
