Lazarus already supports unicode in Win9x using a "best effort"
approach since months. It's all explained in the wiki:


Nick answered with what can be considered a half true. Win9x do not
understand unicode, but you could convert the string before giving it
to it. Which leads us to consider that the real reason is that
codegear simply does not want to support win9x.
