Hmmm, what is a string ?  ;-)

String of what....

lets expand the context:

String/utf-8

String/utf-16-big String/utf-16-little

String/utf-32-big String/utf-32-little

String/ascii

String/iso-8859-1

And so on.

( I could survive with utf extensions )

Should not totally kill any one to implement either ;-)
