WideStrings store Unicode as 16-Bit words (UCS-2 or UTF-16, depending
on OS), UTF-8 stores Unicode as octet sequences. There is a type
definition in the System unit that goes:

UTF8String = type string;
// ^^^^^^ which is AnsiString

Please learn the difference between Unicode, WideStrings, UTF-8,
UTF-16, ANSI, Windows-1252 and ISO-8859-1 *before* *implementing*
anything that has to do with Character Sets.

If there's anything I can do to help with that, please let me know.

BTW: The Firebird Client already does transliteration so it's
questionable if IBO has to do it, too.
