While accessing an array beyond its bounds is not detectable at compile
time and accessing an array beyond its bounds when range checking is
switched off is technically not detectable at runtime, and hence
*undefined* cant be avoided, the attempt to convert strings with code
page CP_NONE to a different code page is easily detectable by the
compiler, as we have predefined string variable type "brands" types
here. Thus, if the outcome is *defined* *to* *be* *undefined* it can and
should result in a compiler error message.
