No. The console uses Unicode internally, as do …W functions. If your
program does too, all is well.

However, many programs are written against …A functions or against the
C runtime library, which also uses …A functions. In this case, the
console converts Unicode user input into the OEM code page expected by
the application, and converts the application output from the OEM code
page into Unicode.

and the MSDN article linked from there. Before I fully migrated to
Linux, I used Andale Mono and later Liberation Mono in the Windows
console to great effect (just because I like tall and narrow rather
than fat and squarish console fonts, not because of coverage).
