u,u2 : UTF8String;
u := #$2267'x';
u2 := #$2267; // warning
Assigning a WideString to a Utf8String works without warning.
Assigning a WideChar (2nd line) to a Utf8String causes "Warning: Unicode
constant cast with potential data loss"
Apparently it is first converted to a char in the System codepage, and
then to string.
Is that intended?
then the result is '??' (so data is lost), yet no warning.
