Hardly. The comment earlier about mbtowc was much closer to the mark.
And wide characters are defined as Unicode points.

Basically, CHR() takes a unicode point and returns that character
in a string appropriately encoded. ASCII() does the reverse.

Just about every multibyte encoding other than Unicode has the problem
of not distinguishing between the code point and the encoding of it.
Unicode is a collection of encodings based on the same set.
