Its not clear why one would need a Windows machine, I would say that
MacOS X would deal with that perfectly well and so, likely, would any
OS that is Unicode enabled.

I agree that your example relies on the Arial Unicode font. What fonts
are commonly used as Unicode fallbacks on MacOS X? Are the newer RH
and Debian builds Unicode enabled now, and what do they come with?

I see the h1, the title and the tooltip al correct, on Windows XP. I
would imagine the Windows 2000 would display the same.

Upgrade to an OS that is Unicode enabled I assume you are using a 9x
(95, 98, 98SE, ME) version of Windows?
