Dear, Mr.Geoffrey Waigh,

I think so, and I also would like to use these kinds of softwares.

In this condition, you may be right.
but at present, some people must give up to use convenient UTF-16
including Win32API, *in fact*.
In future, if Unicode Standard will define 1114113th character
(1114113 means 0x110001 which is over UTF-16 ),
all people (not only CJK users) must give up to use
current UTF-16 libraries. It is a unhappy thing indeed.
I *cordially* hope this will not happen.
