You can extend Unicode support with mule-ucs. This is the excerpt
from the output of Help -> Find Extra Packages.

 * Mule-UCS: Universal Encoding System:
   <URL:ftp://ftp.m17n.org/pub/mule/Mule-UCS/>
   Extended coding systems for Mule, specifically for reading and
   writing UTF-8 encoded Unicode.  This does more than the built-in
   utf-8 coding system, specifically covering a lot of Far Eastern
   characters.  (See the entry in PROBLEMS concerning slow startup of
   Mule-UCS.)

If you are going to use CVS, you may as well try emacs-unicode :-).
