Right you are. For me WideString is UCS2 and not UTF16, as I regard it 
as a sequence of WideChar so that the Unicode user code can be done 
using WideChar and WideString. WideChar only has 16 Bits. So this 
restrict us to Unicode Characters < $FFFF.

I doubt that I ever will need to use Unicode Characters > $FFFF, but of 
course there _are_ other projects.
