The VBScript 5.0 help file lists occurrences of "Unicode" for five

  Asc function

  Chr function

  CreateTextFile method

  OpenAsTextStream method

  OpenTextFile method

In short, you can use AscW with Unicode characters and ChrW with
Unicode character codes. You can also explicitly open text files and
text streams as comprising Unicode characters.
