Yes and no. Carbon Emacs is a personality for GNU Emacs (and XEmacs 
too, maybe) that makes it an Aqua application, behaving and looking 
like TeXShop etc. At least a bit. It should be able to handle Unicode 
but as an ugly and hard to understand and adjust interface to so-called 
fontsets, which are derived from the Apple system fonts (from all three 
Fonts folders). I found Mac-Roman being best supported, but with not 
yet perfect fontsets. Still in the flat part of the learning curve.

Inside this application bundle is a "normal" GNU Emacs that can run in 
Terminal. And this one, or any other version 21.3/21.4, should in 
Terminal set UTF-8 be able to display upon C-h H Greek, Cyrillic, 
Hebrew, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean wishings. And maybe some 
Indic and African too, but I can't tell exactly since I've put many 
free fonts from this areas into my Fonts folders.
