I must have missed that thread. Have you got the thread title or
estimated date of the thread? For interest sake, I would like to read
those discussions.

I'm curious what Lazarus does to abuse ansistring. Ansistring is in
byte format. So is utf-8, so I can't see any immediate issues. That's
why I would like to read those discussions. :-)
