Really?  I just looked at a recent set of Java docs, and it's pretty 
clear that a Java char isn't really a character, it's a UTF-16 
codepoint, and the semantics of String are wrong for non-BMP characters, 
and that the attempt at UTF-8 support remains pretty laughably 
nonstandard and wrong.  I'd be *delighted* to hear that I'm looking at 
wrong/obsolete docs.  Pointers anyone? -Tim
