Exceptions in threads

What happens when a thread throws an exception?

Is it possible for the creating thread to catch it - or even be aware
of it?

Alternatively, is it possible for a thread to establish a catch-all
exception handler? I realise that I can effectively do this in code
but I always get this feeling that it wouldn't be so robust. :-/
