This is correct in general, although *some* Windows console
applications can be persuaded to output in UTF-16. (The only example I
know of is cmd.exe /U.)

Also, there is an unofficial unsupported ugly hack to use “chcp 65001”
which makes applications think that the current OEM codepage is UTF-8.
(It is unsupported because that there is some code that assumes at
most two bytes for each character, while UTF-8 may produce up to
four.)
