String is a Type which may contain characters. String is ShortString or AnsiString type.

Compiler switch {$H} is usually on {$H+}, then String is AnsiString type.

The ShortString length is decided by the programmer and should be, in UCSD Pascal, be from 1 to 255 characters. The length of an AnsiString is only limited by available memory.

In the future, there might be a compiler switch to use unicode (UTF-8 or UTF-16) depending on platform.
