There is code page 65001 for UTF-8, however I don't know since which
version of MS Windows it is supported (and to which extent - e.g.
including the console output). You may change the output code page for
console using the Windows API call SetConsoleOutputCP, but e.g. our unit
Crt currently resets the code page used for output to console to the
"main" process code page (as returned by GetACP) on each write and thus
ignores the user selection - this will probably change in trunk in the
future as part of the Unicode support activities, but the current state is
like this.
