For non-fixed char length there's nothing better than UTF8 (default
ASCII compatible, ready for any future alphabets,..). For fixed-char
length (fast string operations etc) also there's nothing better than
UCS-2 (the Earth coverage ) & UCS-4 (the galaxy coverage).
The non-fixed char length UTF-16 (UCS-2 + surrogate pairs) looks less
efficient than UTF-8 almost from any look point.
