Unicode UTF-8 characters. From the encoding menu, select,
Unicode (UTF-8), the fourth row from the bottom.
With UTF-8 encoding selected, Netscape can display UTF-8 files
Several editors can display unicode. AT&T Bell Labs released
plan9 with an assortment of programs. A close copy of the editor
was ported to Linux and is called wily.
Gaspar Sinai wrote yutex. A screen shot of yutex is shown below

Unicode is a 16-bit encoding standard. This means that Unicode
characters often waste space since text is often in 8-bit encoding.
ASCII, for example, uses only 8-bit encoding. UTF-8 is a
transformation encoding format used to store or transmit Unicode
encoded text. The translation between UTF-8 and Unicode is
smooth and easy.
