As I said before:

If you skimmed it the first time, please reread the first sentence of
my original reply which explicitly answers your question.  Since
Character.isLetterOrDigit(), or any other Character.isFoo()
method, is not restricted to ASCII, neither is \w, \d, or any of the
other character set specifiers.  Also pay special attention to the last
sentence of my original reply :)
