User:fabartus --->Unicode’s Universal Character Set has a potential capacity to support over 1 million characters. Each UCS character is mapped to a code point which is an integer between 0 and 1,114,111 used to represent each character within the internal logic of text processing software (1,114,112 = 2<sup>20</sup> + 2<sup>16</sup> or 17 × 2<sup>16</sup>, or hexadecimal 110000 code points).

The number of encoded characters is made up as follows:
  • 107,154 graphical characters (some of which are invisible, but are still counted as graphical)
  • 207 special purpose characters for control and formatting.
