Compatible Systems

We have a three tiered application which we would like to covert to UniCode
in order to support a Chinese version of our application.

1) The Client tier would use MS Windows 95 Simplified Chinese. Which
encoding scheme of UniCode does this Version of W95 support? UCS2 or UTF2

2) The middle tier is a MS NT4.0 Server. I know that NT4.0 was built from
the bottom up with UniCode in mind and therefore can I assume, that I don't
need to use a Simplified Chinese Version of NT4.0 Server?? Also what
scheme of unicode does NT4.0 support UTF2 or UCS2.

3) The third tier is Unix with Oracle The information I have
gathered says that Oracle only support UTF2 (multi-byte) and not UCS2. Is
this correct?

Do I need to assume that in order for all three tiers to operate correctly
together they need to all use the same encoding schemes??

Many thanks for any assistance
