One additional comment is that the W APIs that existed in Win95 have been
cleaned up and work properly now in Win98.

        The Windows 98 product will have no additional Unicode support in
the base
        operating system than Windows 95 had. The Unicode support is
limited to
        encoding conversion support provided by MultiByteToWideChar and
        WideCharToMultiByte and Unicode rendering via the W variants of the
        family of APIs.
