My wish is to continue using "locale" data, no unicode data in both
sides but using the more recent versions of lazarus than 0.9.24. Ok, I
can compile Lazarus without unicode support but as someday the whole
system should be updated to unicode I want to work in a mixed mode and
a way to do so should be possible without a great problem.

Basically I wish to receive data from DB in ISO8559-1 locale (the
system one, so default locale) and data should be converted to UTF8 to
be displayed by DBAware components. The edition in DBAware components
could could create a character that has no representation in current
locale but in that case I have no problem in get a '?' mark or any
other symbol, but I can not deal with continuos exceptions out of my
control, blanked lines or the worst case characters with changed
representation ('ñ' -> 'c').

I'll investigate it and try to create some kind of filter that allows
me to get a clean ISO8559-1 -> UTF8 -> ISO8559-1 without too much code
to be added in many places and without exceptions.

Thank you for your help.

Best regards,
