I18N & L10N

I am writing a Windows utility. It should be able to support all languages. I am using _UNICODE, UNICODE defines and <tchar.h>. The app takes text inputs from a dialog box.  I am not clear about CJK and East European  languages input. Suppose I set the correct locale in my application and do a GetDlgItemText() (which is actually a GetDlgItemTextW), will I get the input that was entered by the user? Usually CJK is in MBCS.

Secondly, Using SetDlgItemText() shows blobs in the text box. I have installed the CJK language pack on my machine. Does it have to do with the font?

Third: If I want my app to run on Win95 & Win98, how do I go about it? (Win95 & Win98 don't have the W version of the Win32 APIs).

The Platform SDK has info on getting UNICODE apps to run on Win95/98/ME
