I would say that's platform and compiler dependant. What are you using?

This may help:

FWIW, to handle unicode characters, you will need to use the wide character versions of various functions, such ase wprintf() vs. printf(), etc. In any case, this is a pretty deep subject - I once spent the better part of a year implementing internationalization support for a major software suite, back when unicode was just a draft / proposed standard. Google has links to a lot of resources about this, and I suspect that the Wikipedia does also.
