Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (ODATA-734) Unicode Facet is inadequate

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/ODATA-734?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=51443#comment-51443 ] 

Hubert Heijkers commented on ODATA-734:

We discussed introducing an annotation instead to allow us to describe what the server actually supports and deprecate the use of this Unicode facet altogether. We also wanted to understand how servers and clients would use this and keep that in consideration.

>                 URL: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/ODATA-734
>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: OData CSDL
>    Affects Versions: V4.0_OS
>            Reporter: Matthew Borges
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: V4.0_ERRATA03
> The Unicode facet appears to be inadequate to handle all possible character sets.  The facet is set to true for unicode character sets and false for ASCII.  The problem is that there exists character sets (such as windows-1252) that is neither unicode nor ASCII.
> In addition, we should also clarify the meaning of the facet in terms of what it applies to.  Does it apply to the character set that is used when the string is on the wire, or the character set in the underlying data store?  My understanding is that it is the character set of the underlying data store, but others may have a different understanding.
