MySQL Character Set Support

InformIT: MySQL SQL Syntax and Use > Character Set Support
charset is the name of a character set supported by the server, and collation is the name of one of the character set’s collations. These clauses can be specified together or separately. If both are given, the collation name must be compatible with the character set. If only CHARACTER SET is given, its default collation is used. If only COLLATE is given, the character set is implicit in the first part of the character set name.
