In so far it's essential to mention the *differences*, where Lazarus 
works and has to be used differently from Delphi. Now that Delphi uses 
Unicode strings, it's important to explain the Lazarus string types and 
encodings. How to store Unicode, what's the purpose of UTF8ToAnsi, 
UTF8ToSys etc.

A newbie cannot know which are Lazarus and which are FPC issues, so 
*both* should be covered in *one* place (links may go into existing FPC 
pages, of course).
