The standard is actually not very helpful on this score:

For the first phase of translation:
"Physical source file characters are mapped, in an
implementation-defined manner, to the basic source character set"

>From that point on, the standard works in terms of the basic source
character set, but as the mapping to get there is implementation
defined the source file can use any format the vendors want to support,
including extended characters (which generally map to \0x... sequences)
