Dave Page wrote 30.000 lines of code for pgAdmin2... It is getting better 
every day.

Access2K/XP + PostgreSQL support Unicode. You can use them to display both 
French and Arabic. Althought I never tried, I know it is possible.

pgAdmin2 is not multi-byte safe for various ***serious*** reasons.

It means you cannot view Unicode data in pgAdmin2 grid. On the converse, you 
can manage your database (add tables, views, triggers, etc...)
