If you are talking of the in-memory representation of strings. Yes, that is
the definition for a char (16bits) in Mono/.NET. thus the need for utf-16 to
cover the whole unicode character space. See the ECMA standard for the CLI,
for details.

Managed programs have access to easy conversion routines from/to other
encodings, See the Encoding and Stream classes.
