Absolutely. My point is that the mere fact of setting CF_UNICODE
does not constrain CF_TEXT, nor vice versa, contrary to the statement
in _Developing International Software_ previously quoted:
# Any text

# formats, so it's possible to cut and paste across
# applications supporting different character sets.
