 The value parameter is assumed to point to an array representing a string 
 encoded in ASCII; that is, the string is encoded using the ANSI code page.
 This is a nonsense as ASCII is a specific code page while ANSI code page 
 is CP_ACP. But even according the documentation it's Encoding.Default. 
 (MS.NET probably uses MultiByteToWideChar with CP_ACP.)

+That sounds sensible.
