How does the new gen ipod handle international characters in ID3 tags of an mp3 file?

So I'm thiiis close to getting myself a 30 gig video ipod, and was wondering it'll scale to internationalized characters. My mp3 collection (all legit) is mostly world music, and I have, on prior occassions, painstakingly ensured that all non-English songs have their ID3 tags in their native languages. Which means, my iTunes collection has song titles and artists information in, among other scripts, Chinese, French, Thai, Urdu, Tamil, Telugu, Hindi and Punjabi.
I asked the sales guy at the local Apple showroom about this, but I don't think he understood the question; he was polite about it, but he appeared incredulous as to why anyone would presume non-English songs wont play on an ipod.
I googled, of course, but I don't seem to be hitting the right keywords, which is why I'm asking here.
(If it's any help, I know that itunes for Windows supports unicode; heck, that's where I editted most of my entries.)
