That's because you're defining an array, not a set.

To define it as a set do:

   Delimiters  = [#9, #10, #12, #13, #26, #32];

Your c in delimiters will work because this is a set.

The FPC source tree is full of such constructs.

The sysutils unit has CharInSet() BTW, if you want to use an array.
