Created: 07 May 2014

Status: Not Applicable

Part: Part 6 (2004)


Page: 24

Clause: 8.3

Paragraph: 1

Category: No impact on this part


Today UTF-8 coding is only the preferred method of coding characters in ICD files, which permits vendors to choose among other codings like ANSI or ASCII/DOS. Not all the system configuration tools do allow importing of ICD files coded other than UTF-8.


To avoid interoperability issues vendors shall provide ICD files UTF-8 coded.
