I'm afraid the answer hasn't really changed from 2-1/2 weeks ago.
ht://Dig only supports 8-bit character sets.

This topic has been discussed many times on the list, and there are still
no volunteers to take on the huge amount of work it would require to
adapt ht://Dig for full Unicode support, and to add in the word splitting
algorithms needed for many Asian languages.
