I think it depends on the font that's selected in the console
properties. With the "Raster Font", only the "OEM" codepage (i.e. 437,
850, ...) is supported. With "Lucida Console" or "Consolas", however,
it seems to switch to UTF-16 mode.
(Well, more UCS2 than UTF-16 actually, since surrogates aren't supported.)
