From version 4.1, you can speciy different character set on these string columns, example latin1 and utf8.

The manual should be updated to differentiate characters and bytes, maybe some notes need to be added.

In chapter 11.5 storage requirements seems to refer to 1 byte per character in the requirements of char, varchar and text. Some additional notes in 11.4 will also be nice too.
