Why did UTF-8 replace the ASCII character-encoding standard?

Answered by wiki @


Unicode characters are encoded into 8 bit byte sequence by UTF-8

The reason why UTF-8 replaces ASCII character-encoding standard is due to the advantages, broader scope, and utility of UTF-8 compared to ASCII, which includes;

  • UTF-8, which is a Unicode-based encoding, has the capacity to support data based on a very wide variety of languages, including the ability for multilingual form and page accommodation. Based of the capabilities of UTF-8, server side logic required for character encoding determination is not required

  • The  UTF-8 has the capacity for storing characters in more than one byte, which opens up the possibility for a wide range of characters including the ASCII characters and emoji

Due to the above mentioned advantages, the UTF-8 is the preferred character encoding for a wider variety of user, making it to replace the ASCII
