This document updates the specification of UTF-8,
an encoding of the UCS which is designed to be
compatible with many current applications and protocols. UTF-8
has the characteristic of preserving the full US-ASCII range,
providing compatibility with file systems, parsers and other software
that rely on US-ASCII values but are transparent to other values.
This memo obsoletes and replaces RFC 2279.
