Unicode support for Bubbler

We are in the final testing stages of rolling out proper Unicode support for Bubbler so you can post in whatever language you like (I think; we've tried some German and French but we're not too good at typing in Chinese or Turkish or Greek).

I have to say that Unicode support on Windows is quite bizarrely implemented, with #ifdef _UNICODE and having to distinguish between "wide" characters and regular ones and all sorts of things that shouldn't be necessary. The Mac is not that far ahead of Windows, or slightly behind Windows, in many areas, but Unicode and multi-language support is WAY ahead. It "just works".
