I'm wondering if there any different between these tow Collations in mysql encoding charset UTF8:
utf8_general_ci and utf8_unicode_ci
They both looks the same! note: For now I'm writing in them in English only, But I'm afraid if it has a side-effect if I inserted in another language like Arabic.

  • My current conclusion is: using utf8_unicode_ci to ensure wider/better character support. – Omar Al-Ithawi Oct 4 '09 at 12:56

I search on google and I found this link; there is a good explanation.
