That's probably because the default warning level is 3 for MSVC; I always
use -W4, though. Some consider this a major QoI issue. ;-)

Nope, Win9x supports little to no Unicode.

Depends on whether you consider a problem the fact that it doesn't work on
Win9x. ;-)

(You can use TCHAR if you consider the performance difference significant.)
