Subject: unicode character on Different Unix platforms ....

Here is a query on Unicode.
I am building an application, which reads a multi byte character string from
text file.
The application converts this MBCS string to unicode string and writes it
a dbf file.
The application has to work on Sun Solaris, HP-UX and AIX .
It works fine on AIX and NT.
I use wchar_t to define a wide char (unicode) string.
On Sun solaris, wchar_t is defined as unsigned long and on HP -UX it is
as unsigned int.

Is my basic assumption that unicode character is of 2 bytes wide right ?
If so
then how is that
different OSs define their own definition of wchar_t ?

waiting for your reply.
