I am fairly certain that he confuses this with the special case of 
applying sizeof() to a string type, where you always get one byte 
more (the preceding length byte) than the string type has been 
defined, for example SizeOf (String [80]) will return 81, 80 bytes 
reserved for the contents plus the length byte...
