I think we (and midipix) have a different perspective from Yonggang Luo on portable development. Our view is that you write to a POSIX (or nearly-POSIX) target with fully working Unicode support and fix the small number of targets (i.e. just Windows) that don't already provide these things. Yonggang Luo's perspective seems to be more of a traditional Windows approach with #ifdef and lots of OS-specific code, but just making the Windows branch of the #ifdefs less hideous than it was before. :) Rich
