[docs] [issue36789] Unicode HOWTO incorrectly states that UTF-8 contains no zero bytes

Josh Rosenberg <shadowranger+python at gmail.com> added the comment:

Minor bikeshed: If updating the documentation, refer to U+0000 as "the null character" or "NUL", not "NULL". Using "NULL" allows for confusion with NULL pointers; "the null character" (the name used in the Unicode standard) or "NUL" (the official three letter abbreviation in ASCII, Unicode too I think) has no such opportunity for confusion.
