For most people though, UTF-8 is a loser. If you want to do any poking
around in the text, having it be UTF-8 (a non-fixed size encoding) is a
huge pain in the butt. In my opinion, Unicode is it, period. Its the
future, and everyone should start dealing with it. Unicode based wide
character APIs are available almost everywhere so that you can work
directly with the Unicode until it actually has to go to some system API
that requires it be in a local code page.
