I have a situation where I internally work with AnsiStrings but need to
convert them to UTF-8 before passing them to libpango, which I do with
AnsiToUtf8(). I then need the byte offset of one specific (varying)
character in the UTF-8 string, which is not trivially available since
some characters are encoded in 2 bytes. Before I start my own hacks: Is
there a nice way of finding the byte offset of the n-th character in an
Thanks a lot.
