Subject RE: sheet names and string format read garbled on EBCDIC machine

We found out the hard way that the en-us version of excel2000 does not
encode ALL strings in Unicode, hence this discussion thread. 

I see your reference to the break points in BoundSheetRecord, so maybe
international versions of Excel are coded differently? 

Anyway, I guess we should just get these changes in, for now, and see
what comes up next. 

How long does it take to get the changes in?

I found,in the XLS file made by Excel97 or later,the encoding of 
String is all 16Bit Unicode,it is not depend on default encoding of env.
It means the encoding is not depend on locale too,because it is 
always 16Bit Unicode:D
So,perhaps it is no sense that I made a XLS file on my env and send
