if i do ansistringvar := widestringvar or widestringvar := ansistringvar
what does the compiler do?

1: use the systems default encoding (if so obtained from where?)
2: use utf-8
3: use iso-8859-1
4: use something else?

furthermore if the encoding used is one not capable of representing all
unicode code points what are the reduction rules used in the conversion from
widestring to ansistring?
