 Improved support for character set handling was added to MySQL in
 Version 4.1.  The features described here are as implemented in MySQL
 4.1.1.  (MySQL 4.1.0 has some but not all of these features, and some
 of them are implemented differently.)
 This chapter discusses the following topics:
    * What are character sets and collations?
    * The multiple-level default system
    * New syntax in MySQL 4.1
    * Affected functions and operations
    * Unicode support
    * The meaning of each individual character set and collation
 Character set support currently is included in the `MyISAM', `MEMORY'
 (`HEAP'), and (as of MySQL 4.1.2) `InnoDB' storage engines.  The `ISAM'
 storage engine does not include character set support; there are no
 plans to change this, because `ISAM' is deprecated.
