National Character Set.

I have a quick question regarding character sets. Our application is written in .Net C# which means it is running in Windows. The Windows kernel uses the UCS-2 encoding which would imply that my national character set in Oracle (11g) should be AL16UTF16 and not UTF8. I know that from what I read that if the national character set was set to UTF-8 and I passed in UTF-16 from the application that no data loss would occur but that additional overhead would be incurred.

Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.
