Kaffe supports unicode in the most basic way -- ie, characters
are really 16 bit quantities and Unicode string constants are
handled correctly.

However, you'll probably find that many of the java.lang.Character
methods are not aware of what the non-western letters are, etc.

Another question: do you have access to a Unicode font?
