I reckon a lot would hinge on the capabilities of the CMS, the middleware,
and the database.  Check to make sure you are using a character set across
the board that is capable of encoding the strings.  Unicode should
suffice--just make sure everybody is talking in that set and you may be ok
from a technical standpoint.  Of course, your CMS has to be able to handle
it, but that is a coding issue.
