Sorry. I have to remind myself that when I write, I shouldn't leave any
room for misinterpretation.

What I meant was that for character lengths, we can assume a fixed width
of 1 byte. And for the Unicode values, we just assume the byte value.
And as Ian mentioned in a previous post, apparently that's exactly what
ISO-8859-1 is so scrap any explanation I gave and let's just say
ISO-8859-1, :).
