I'd like to hear from those of you who have to store occasional text information with non-Latin characters like Cyrillic, Greek or Hebrew. I guess the systematic way to do it would be to use Unicode in the column definition but Unicode is expensive in terms of storage.
If non-Latin data forms only a small part of the data in the table is there any chance to store it using some 8- or perhaps 7-bit encodings? By this I mean that I don't want to use any non-Latin string literals in my queries and would be happy to only get the data in queries like this:
The interpretation of the characters would be done by the client with the use of the appropriate fonts etc. I would appeciate to hear about best practices in this area.
