The editors can open it, but non unicode strings within the Hollywood programs may get messed up on other systems.
Maybe. If you stay within a 'western' target for your application and use a 'western' string encoding I think you don't need to spend a lot of brain on it.
If you intend to release your software to 'eastern', like arabic, chinese, japanese or so, then yes, you can get in trouble.
After all, unicode doesn't exist in Amiga programs. And yet, this did work for > 35 years.[ Edited by asrael22 13.09.2020 - 20:43 ]
