[fpc-pascal] XML with lazarus UTF8 problem

Moin, Moin,

sounds interesting. Where do I get cwstring?

on this thread someone pointed out, that one needs it only on linux - do I need it on darwin, too?

Why do I have to Encode and not to Decode UTF8 if the file is UTF8. This is my mistake. It works now!
But I do not understand that. Can someone explain?
