utf8_general_ci versus utf8_unicode_ci character set.

utf8_general_ci Unicode (multilingual), case-insensitive
utf8_unicode_ci Unicode (multilingual), case-insensitive
(Above are character sets shown by phpMyAdmin.)

Can you please explain what is the difference between utf8_general_ci and
utf8_unicode_ci ? What are the effects of choosing one over the other when
designing a database ?
