This technique is useful for developing small Unicode pages or for converting Unicode text to escape code sequences (for older tools only), but requires users to have activate and switch language keyboards.
Developers must activate keyboards for any script they wish to type.
This is best used for Unicode pages. Do NOT use this for other encodings such as Latin-2 and so forth.
Composer actually encodes characters as four-digit Unicode escape codes (e.g. Љ for Cyrillic Љ). In Composer itself, these numeric codes are not seen, but would be seen in other programs such as Dreamweaver or plain text-editors. As a result, Composer should be used only for Unicode or Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) pages.
