Have you tried Boost.Locale? I'm using it for UTF-8 in my Windows
application and file output seems to be working fine (obviously you have to
imbue the fstream with the locale provided by the library). I output text
to a file (Greek, Russian, and Arabic, 3 lines, all in the same file), and
then opened it in UltraEdit, which correctly opened it as a UTF-8 encoded

totally stupid and wrong.
