Hi Mark,

although i am not the original poster i really appreciate you explanation. 

The only thing what was missing …

It would have been nice if you had also put some sample code for how to UTF8 encode the string.
That would have made your explanations complete. ;)

I am pretty sure there are many on the list who are struggling with that econding part. Or am i the only one?
