Well, English characters take up one byte, while something like Japanese takes up two.

So the Japanese word 安全網, typed in Japanese characters, takes up 6 bytes, while when written with English characters as zainetica takes up 9 bytes. (Zainetica is Japanese for 'Safety net', by the way.)

Anyways, I don't think that switching it to unicode will do anything, though I could be wrong. I'll go see.
