Subject: RE: Unicode Support in Memphis/Win98?
The Windows 98 product will have no additional Unicode support in
operating system than Windows 95 had. The Unicode support is
encoding conversion support provided by MultiByteToWideChar and
WideCharToMultiByte and Unicode rendering via the W variants of the
family of APIs.
