#Unicode has 50% of the web traffic

With all the websites relevant to me in Unicode, it is a surprise when I learned that in is only from this August 50% of web traffic is in the Unicode encoding.

Google January 2010

The growth has come particularly from a decrease in the use of older encoding systems used for Western languages. The graph also helps understand why many of the scripts like Devanagari who have had relatively recent changes in the Unicode definitions have so much room for growth. This also gives the impression that people do not have the Unicode fonts that MediaWiki relies on.
Thanks,
