Tested the "wrong" return of stdout:

code page UTF8 - 65001 en Windows
Length of string: 7
camión -> Returned written: 6

Source code:
uses classes,windows;
 s: ansistring;
 OutputStream: TStream;
 Writeln('code page UTF8 - 65001 en Windows');
 OutputStream := THandleStream.Create(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE));
 s:='cami'+#$C3+#$B3+'n'; //camión
 writeln('Length of string: ',Length(s));
 writeln(' -> Returned written: ',OutputStream.write(s[1],Length(s)));

Best regards,
