Most probably, yes.
Utf-8 and utf-16 have one big difference. Utf-16 does not allow more than 16
bits for storing a character, while utf8 does. So if you are used to utf-16
you will likely conclude that you can store only ascii in utf-8. Which is
false, since it can actually store more than utf-16 :)
So, if you can only store 8 bits per char, then indeed you need to store all
values as ༀ
Which luckely we really don't have to care about.
