Is there a simple test (or trick) I can run on Windows command line to know if it supports unicode?

For the context, I'm using Node.js - but I'm pretty confident I could adapt any solutions.

So you want to check what the current code page and font are set to for the command prompt? chcp by itself will return the code page in use. For the current font you'll probably have to check where it's stored in the registry and retrieve the value. – Karan Jun 14 '13 at 1:29
But how would I found the current font? – Simon Boudrias Jun 14 '13 at 2:25
If I find the reg key I'll let you know, although perhaps someone will come up with a better idea for detection. – Karan Jun 14 '13 at 2:45
