In this lesson, you’ll learn about a crucial feature of UTF-8 called variable-length encoding. The UTF-8 encoding of Unicode doesn’t just store the code point. You’ll write a hex-based code point viewer to help visualize this. Using this function, you’ll try different characters and see the 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-byte encodings that UTF-8 uses.
