StruxureWare Building Operation 1.2 and above
Building Operation supports various language characters as part of Unicode. These characters are usually received in UCS-4, UCS-2 or UTF-8 and sent in either UCS-2 or UCS-4. Double-byte format such as JIS X 0208 character set is not supported.
Here is a reference posted on Microsoft Developers Website: Double Byte Character Sets. The note (second paragraph) of this reference indicates that new applications should use Unicode and that DBCS is a legacy protocol.
There are no plans to support double-byte characters. It is recommended that a Unicode standard (UCS-4, UCS-2 or UTF-8) be used.
