Can't help with the Windows stuff, but you may like to look at
the sam distribution from the Bell Labs folks. Sam's an editor
for Plan 9 and UNIX, and deals in Unicode internally. It reads
and writes files in UTF encoding, so you don't normally notice.
The sam distribution is not public domain, but is freely available,
so you can have a browse through the functions in its library.

Off-hand, I'm not sure whether you should be looking at, or one of the lucent sites now.
