I'm using FreeBSD with ISO8859-1 or 15 and do not use cwstring
But I think my error was to assume the strings given by objects from the
dom-unit are un-decoded UTF8. Now I think (haven't checked yet) that
decoding to the german system locale (ISO8859-1 or 15) is done already.
If I leave out the decoding completly it works - besides the missing
euro sign, but that has very low prority. Umlauts and 'ß' are okay.
