We have been enabling Unicode across various parts of the application. In the April 24, we will be supporting Unicode in the project name, title, and description. Our Unicode support is the same as the "n" classes in MS SQL Server, which I believe is UCS-2 (all the 16-bit codepoints). I believe this includes all Chinese characters, but I'm not 100% sure.

Sad, but true. No UTF-16 in SQL Server 2005, only UCS-2 (so, no mathematical alphanumeric characters, music notational characters, ideograms, or ancient language characters). The set of all 16-bit code points is also called the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP).

This is correct - all Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters, but not ideograms, are contained in the Basic Multilingual Plane.
