I would also recommend ICU and point out that:

regex will now work with ICU and handle UTF-8 UTF-16 or UTF-32 input via
some new "Unicode aware" interfaces.

There are some unofficial iterator adapters in
boost/regex/pending/unicode_iterator.hpp that will convert between various
Unicode encodings "on the fly": for example they can be used to make a UTF-8
sequence appear "as if" they were a UTF-32 sequence or whatever.

HTH, John.
