No you don't. You are mixing the information with how the information
is coded. utf is like base64, a way of coding the information that is
usefull for storage or transfer. But once you have decode the byte
stream, you no longer need any understanding of base64 to process your
information. Likewise, once you have decode the bytestream into uniocde
information you don't need knowledge of utf to process unicode strings.
