Nothing special, you just specify the correct encoding for connection, it
can be ISO8859_1, it can be UNICODE_FSS. Driver will correctly translate
that into Unicode.

If you use Firebird 1.x.x, you will have problems with Unicode in Firebird -
there are no collations for UNICODE_FSS. As far as I know, this have changed
in FB 2.0, but not yet available.
