Would it be possible to use both single- and multibyte characters as encryption key?

I'm not sure, what character encoding MyPassword uses, but in UTF-8 any character can be encoded into one to four bytes (see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTF-8#Description\) and there are many languages, that use both [A-Z] and diacritics (all slavonic, baltic and scandinavian langs, hungarian,..).
I think this matters mostly for Linux users, as Windows prefer language-specific singlebyte encodings (e.g. windows-1250 or iso-8859-2 for czech).
