The Jabber protocol itself uses Unicode (UTF-8) which can handle any 
language known to mankind. The problem would be with the clients 
translating between the Unicode character set back and their own local 
encodings; not all platforms are good at this. (I understand that 
Windows NT and 2000 have good Unicode support, but not 95/98/Me.)

So you should ask this same question of the WinJab developers.
