UTF-8 sucks for Japanese and Chinese texts mainly due to space  
reasons. If anything makes sense, then it is UTF-16, which Textmate  
also supports.

Apart from that, it seems that Unicode is not actually able to handle  
100% of Chinese (and maybe also Japanese) script. But I'm not a  
Unicode expert.
