@section Introduction to International Character Sets
The users of these scripts have established many more-or-less standard
coding systems for storing files. Emacs internally uses a single
multibyte character encoding, so that it can intermix characters from
all these scripts in a single buffer or string. This encoding
represents each non-ASCII character as a sequence of bytes in the range
0200 through 0377. Emacs translates between the multibyte character
encoding and various other coding systems when reading and writing
files, when exchanging data with subprocesses, and (in some cases) in
the @kbd{C-q} command (@pxref{Multibyte Conversion}).

@cindex characters in a certain charset
The command @kbd{M-x list-charset-chars} prompts for a name of a
character set, and displays all the characters in that character set.
Keyboards, even in the countries where these character sets are used,
generally don't have keys for all the characters in them. So Emacs
supports various @dfn{input methods}, typically one for each script or
