Just to clarify a bit: ANTLR v3 generated parsers/lexers can 
handle unicode input.  However the grammar file used to generate 
those parsers/lexers in the first place cannot directly contain 

The reason for this is that the grammar parser in ANTLR v3 is 
still using ANTLR v2, which doesn't support unicode.  Once Ter has 
rewritten it using v3 itself (which he said he's working on at the 
moment) then this restriction should be lifted.

(Which is I'm sure what Michael was saying; it just sounded a 
little confusingly worded to me.)
