Displaying international characters
How can I display UTF-16 and 32 encoded characters?

I have just spent a couple of hours learning and building with DFL only to
finally read in the docs that UTF is not supported.  It was a great experience
for a beginner, though....

writef() supports those. Windows MessageBoxW() and TextOutW() work with  
UTF-16 on all versions.

DFL doesn't "completely" support it yet, but it does for the most part.  
DFL is still just leaving the alpha stage. If you find something that  
doesn't support it, make a note on the DFL forum; this type of thing  
usually gets priority.

For one or two values of "supports".  It's certainly no more advanced in 
its ability to display them than printf or puts.
