    Wide characters in Windows 2K and XP are used for UTF-16 for most
    programs that I know of including the Microsoft Office suite and OS
    programs such as NotePad and WordPad. Windows 9x has limited Unicode
    support, but many programs do use wide characters for UTF-16 on Windows
    9x as well.
