Subj:   Re: Unicode surprise
From:   Victor Sokovin

  Latin table : 394,586,112 bytes  

  Unicode table : 618,798,592 bytes  

  For those in the know, does this mean that wherever I create Character based columns in Unicode, we'll have to accept a vast increase in actual Perm space used ?  

Yes, always. Internal format for Unicode is always 2 byte per char. You probably confuse it with UTF8, which is more economical, but UTF8 is only supported on the client side. Once the Unicode data is in the database it is converted to the 2-byte format.
