Well, not to be grim (<smile>) but when doing this one hopefully knows how
much everything that goes through the operating system will usually be
converted back to that legacy code page. Supporting s non-legacy encoding on
a legacy OS feels like getting a hubcap for a tractor? Or perhaps a tape
deck? :-)

Win2000/XP/.Net are ever so much better for supporting Unicode -- when
building a home, a foundation made to support the house is ever so much
