I'm using Emacs myself, but to be honest, the Unicode capabilities of Emacs are years behind those of most other editors, at least on Mac OS X. Non-BMP characters or combined characters don't work at all, BMP characters only if they are supported by the selected font. The support in the editor provided by the OS (TextEdit) is much better.
