Unicode employs a 16-bit coding scheme that allows for 65,536 distinct characters, enough to support all significant world languages, including several archaic or arcane languages such as Sanskrit and Egyptian hieroglyphs. Unicode also includes representations for punctuation marks, mathematical symbols, and dingbats, with room left for future expansion.
