Currently the database can store invalid UTF-16 as well as valid UTF-16. Conversion from UTF-16 to UTF-8 might not be able to preserve invalid UTF-16 sequences. I don’t understand how the other platforms handle this. Perhaps the specification needs to be clearer on whether invalid UTF-16 is allowed.
