I wrote "known German characters" and "known Chinese symbols of the BMP"
for example character constants. If you want to read some examples of
problems with utf-8 especially for pupils and Pascal beginners read the
German Lazarus Forum or freepascal.ru. Why should we design programming
so that it complicates the work for them? Anyway, I don't care, do what
you want but please implement Unicode resource strings in FPC compiler.
