• The server can provide error messages to clients in many languages. See Section 10.2, “Setting the
Error Message Language”.
• Full support for several different character sets, including latin1 (cp1252), german, big5, ujis,
and more. For example, the Scandinavian characters “å”, “ä” and “ö” are permitted in table and
column names. Unicode support is available as of MySQL 4.1.
• All data is saved in the chosen character set.
• Sorting and comparisons are done according to the chosen character set and collation (using
latin1 and Swedish collation by default). It is possible to change this when the MySQL server is
started. To see an example of very advanced sorting, look at the Czech sorting code. MySQL Server
supports many different character sets that can be specified at compile time and runtime.
• As of MySQL 4.1, the server time zone can be changed dynamically, and individual clients can
specify their own time zone. Section 10.6, “MySQL Server Time Zone Support”.
