I understand what is double-byte characters, but what I don't understand are:
- What are the consequences of having double-byte characters input/stored/flow within a system (in this case Salesforce Lightning or Classic) and if the data needs to pass to other system? (e.g. will double byte characters have more chances of data corruption/or not displaying correctly?) Do these characters need to be converted to single byte to avoid this?
- How to identify double-byte characters vs single byte (without writing codes if possible?)? Is it only Japan, Korea and China language that have double byte characters?
- In Salesforce, do double byte characters automatically converted to Single Byte characters (Unicode?), when we input them in fields such as email/phone/etc? Is the behavior same in Classic and Lightning?
Appreciate if anyone could explain the above as I am fairly new in this. Thank you!
