Well I decided to use wide-chars (UCS-2) based on this article...

"The Absolute Minimum Every Software Developer Absolutely, Positively Must Know About Unicode and Character Sets (No Excuses!)"

http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/Unicode.html

It discusses most of the points you raise.

I guess you may not agree that UCS-2 (16 bit wide-char) is the way to go. But I hope it at least explains my reasoning (better than I can).

Best Regards,
jeff
