MSElang and MSEpas (a subset of Free Pascal) have "string8" (utf-8) "string16" 
(utf-16) "string32" (ucs-4) and "bytestring" for any 8-bit encoding and 
binary data. Character types are "char8", "char16" and "char32".

MSElang has been designed as a high performance language so it can't be so 
simple.
