I think you can safely use Delphi functions like
function UTF8Decode(const S: UTF8String): WideString;
function UTF8Encode(const WS: WideString): UTF8String;

you have to choose appropriate handling (i.e. not pchar based functions).
Other than that, zero inside string means end of string,
i.e. unicode_fss string can contain zero byte in the middle
only if it is part of your data.
