How do you deal with Chinese characters that can't be represented in 16 bits?

How are people dealing with >16 bit Unicode code points? Specifically, in languages like Java, C# and C++, which assume 16 bit characters (I believe), how are you supporting GB 18030? I would suspect that the various languages' methods like substring(), charAt(), operator[], etc can't be safely used in China. If your wstring, say, contains a Chinese string, then .size() doesn't tell you how many characters are in it, right? On a related note, what interesting Chinese characters require more than >16 bits? I'm thinking about making a short presentation for my co-workers on this subject and I'd like to have some interesting examples. (Oh, and I'm going to run any examples by my Chinese colleagues first, so don't bother trying to make me say "penis" or something in front of my co-workers :-))

We are not the masters of subtitling yet

I (well, my boss) am/is inputting Chinese-language sub-station Alpha subtitles into VirtualDub for DVD's, and what comes out are, surprise surprise, piles of unicode. The citizens of the PRC are not known to be fluent in unicode, so what could be going wrong and how do I, his designated software monkey, fix it? [more inside]

Unicode Chinese characters

[MT question] My blog is configured to publish in Unicode. I frequently use Chinese characters in my posts. The posts are published just fine, but when I go to edit a post, what comes up aren't the Chinese characters, but rather the Unicode coding for the characters. Is there some way to configure MT so that when I edit an older post, I can see the characters instead of the Unicode coding?

I wouldn't be surprised if the same thing happens with Japanese/Korean/Arabic/Summerian.
