Hm, that's funny, the string is not found.

I did:

	$ fpc -Fu../zipfile -al -B -FE./bin TestDocInfo
	$ grep -i CWSTRING bin/*.s

and the output was empty.

Meanwhile I had some look and found that DOM is using a type "DOMString"
everywhere which itself is defined as

	DOMString = WideString;

so that is an indicator for using widestrings? The uses-line looks like

	  SysUtils, Classes, AVL_Tree;

Confusing ...
