Syntax: directoryString; In general Unicode characters are allowed. In LDAP, this data type implies UTF-8 encoding, and such characters are permitted. However, to reduce the risk of application errors, it is recommended that values contain only characters that could occur in account or login user names. While the UTF-8 encoding will often be appropriate, the specific encoding depends on the technology involved, and may not be limited to UTF-8 when more than LDAP is involved.
