That is correct. I personally have no problem if byte fields and
unicode strings are connected through some encoding; I personally
think making it fixed at Latin-1 might be best.
I was merely responding to Skip's question why an encoding comes
into play at all, as byte fields inherently have no encoding, and
might not even represent character data. I was responding that
this is mostly true, except for source code.
