Nice work, and good research. Thanks. I do think you should put MySQL or MariaDB in the title though as your presentation is very specific to it. I'm left wondering what the postgresql story is ;-)

Hey, thanks for your comment. You are right. I will change the title to be more specific.

I might have a look at how Postgres handled character sets.
They probably got it right the first time, but this is just a guess :)
