Ignoring that ANSI Characters > $7F are locale depending makes a program 
work perfectly in a single country and mostly decently in many others.

Ignoring that ut8-code-points can be coded in two code-elements in an 
"ANSIString" makes a program work only in countries that use just ASCII, 
Thus not in at all in Europe.
