What do you mean by this ? These refer to "Byte String Types"

UTF8 _is_ a Unicode coding and thus UTF8String _should_be_ a Unicode 
String type (of course it is not in the current implementation, as the 
compiler can't tell it from ANSIString, but that is exactly what we are 
discussing right now.) If UTF8String is not a Unicode type there is no 
right for it to exist.
