All characters in Java are stored internally as 16-bit Unicode characters. Some books about Java (like Peter van der Linden's JUST JAVA 2) have a table at the back that maps between Latin-1 ISO and Unicode.

I forgot, the first 128 (127?) characters in Unicode map directly to 7-bit ASCII (but still occupy 16 bits).
