Appendix A. Multibyte Encoding Types

Table A-1 lists the various multibyte encoding types supported by PostgreSQL, as of version 7.1.x. These encoding types are only available if PostgreSQL was configured with the --enable-multibyte flag (see Chapter 2). A database can be created with a default encoding type if SQL_ASCII is not desired.
