It's all a bit icky. X has no concept of Unicode at all, though
both Java and Harmony running on X do. You could probably get normal
Unicode constants by using the C++ conventions for wide-character
constants (I can't remember the exact syntax). But if you're using Unicode
you'll likely be putting all your text in separate files anyway. Any
Posix system will have some notion of wide-character support, but that
won't necessarily be Unicode.
