Sorry, but e.g. I don't know the "official" names of the Delphi 7
compatible "String" and the Delphi XE compatible "String" in fpc/Lazarus.
I suppose in DXE the Delphi 7 compatible String is not available at all,
while I suppose in fpc this String type will still be available when
setting appropriate compiler options.
I do now that that the Delphi 7 compatible String in fpc sometimes has
been called ANSIString, while Lazarus funnily stores UTF8 in the type
ANSIString, even in spite of the naming.
I seem to have read that in Delphi XE the strings also are called
ANSIString, even if they work differently from what (the currently
released) fpc call with that name.
So a decent grid would be very helpful.
