A starting point for those interested to understand character encodings and their importance

Joel Spolsky posted a blog post years ago that makes a very good introduction to the subject. Check it out: The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Absolutely, Positively Must Know About Unicode and Character Sets (No Excuses!)

http://www.i18nguy.com/ is a good place to find resources related to internationalization (i18n) and as a result it contains a lot of very useful information related to character encodings, their usage and implication of using and mostly misusing them.
