Which UTF code should I use?
Which unicode should I use in my HTML document? My doc contains the following codes:
Ā which renders Ā
ā which renders ā
á which renders á
í which renders í
which renders सरस्वतीनदी (Sanskrit)
ཐིག་ལེ which renders ཐིག་ལེ (Tibetan)
རླུང which renders རླུང (Tibetan)
I haven't included the semi-colons because they would render otherwise. I don't know much about unicodes but I intend to learn about them. After realising that UTF-8 cannot be used with these characters, I wondered if others could be used, like UTF-16 or UTF-32 etc. I've also heard of BOM. Does this apply and is there anything else I must include? Thanks.

UTF-8 can be used to render ALL characters. You should in general always use UTF-8.
BOM is almost useless; just avoid them. They do not apply in your HTML file anyway.
