hmm, depends on what you mean by "handling characters".

at least in Gem, you should be able to display unicode characters, by
using the [string( message (in combination with [text3d]).
the arguments are numbers which enumerate the glyphs in your font (and
with unicode fonts this should map to unicode characters:)
report a bug if it does not.

however, you might be talking of something totally different...
