The same thing is, of course, true for Sybase databases using UTF-8
at the database character set, accessing them through a JDBC driver.
But I think Tex's question is aimed at the much murkier area
of what the various database vendors' strategies are for dealing
with UTF-16 Unicode as a datatype. In that area, the answers for
what a cross-platform application vendor needs to do and for how
JDBC drivers might abstract differences in database implementations
are still unclear.
