Wat is Unicode

XKCD joke
Mojibake is often caused when a character encoding is not correctly tagged in a document, … For example, the intended word "殇字化け", encoded in UTF-8, is incorrectly displayed as "æ–‡å—化ã‘" in software that is configured to expect text in the Windows-1252 or ISO-8859-1 encodings, usually labelled Western.
