Unicode is a character encoding standard that aims to represent all the characters used in writing systems around the world. It provides a unique numeric code (code point) for each character, including letters, digits, punctuation marks, symbols, and special characters from various languages and scripts. The Unicode standard allows for the consistent and unambiguous representation of text in different computer systems, programming languages, and software applications.
