#474 – You Can Include Unicode Characters in Your Source Code

You can enter Unicode characters directly into your source code using the editor in Visual Studio.  These characters will be stored and intepreted correctly, if contained in a comment or a string literal.  (Unicode characters are not used in any C# keywords).

You can also enter a hex code for the Unicode character, rather than entering the character directly.  (E.g. By copying/pasting it or entering from a keyboard that includes the character)

        static void Main()
        {
            string money = "€";
            string sameThing = "\u20AC";
        }
