Some questions / things unclear

I want to undertand more and have the following question:

  • Suppose the LCL encodes all its strings using UTF8, could you display for instance cyrilic or Arabic in a Russian or Arabian version of win98, i.e. without using the *W winapi calls? As far as I know both together will be impossible then, because no code page supports both charsets. Please correct me, if wrong.

Maybe it is best, if we create a new widgetset win32u, that uses the unicode functions instead of ascii functions. Vincent 14:33, 20 May 2006 (CEST)
