It's important to use the ANSI code page because of the way the
characters are handled internally (you can see this in part 4).  If
you just convert the characters straight to unicode then ê will
become "ê" instead of "ę" in the Polish (?) code page (similar
behavior in other code pages).  You can see an example in the
screenshot from Bug #27767 :
http://bugs.winehq.org/attachment.cgi?id=35529 .  If you converted
straight to Unicode then you'd need to convert it a second time to get
the proper character, unless I'm missing something.
