Roger Leigh commented on XERCESC-2101:

- [Unix build 
- [Windows build 

All builds have passed using a mixture of old and new compilers using the 
previous defaults and char16_t, respectively.

Overall, this is a fairly trivial change to a typedef with the changes to the 
supporting build infrastructure to detect and enable it.  It enables the use of 
{{u"Unicode string"}}, which offers a significant usability improvement for end 
users of the library API, as well as a potential minor performance improvement 
by removing the need to transcode from 8-bit strings.  No need to transcode to 
wide strings for every element and attribute name, it's all handled at compile 
time by the compiler.
