Macintosh OS8.6, OS9

A communication with someone offlist (though I think he is on the list)
suggested that Unicode is not supported at all in Macintosh OS8.6 or OS9,
not even to the degree that it is supported in Windows 9x, except by means
of Windows emulation (if I'm characterizing the message correctly; it is on
another computer at the moment). Is this true? (Obviously I don't use Mac
OS much). I question this statement because the last time I used a Mac with
OS8.6 (I don't have many opportunities, I'm afraid), Netscape 4 did include
the UTF-8 encoding among the permitted encodings; but as it wasn't my
computer, I didn't install a Unicode font to test it.
