[Mono-list] UTF8 Encoding of data in PKCS#7

If you got a string you want PKCS#7 sign or envelope, are you then
supposed to UTF8 encode it yourself before adding the data to the
relevant Mono classes, or is that handled internally by Mono?

I got a string where I can either choose:
  byte[] data = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(myString);
  byte[] data = System.Text.Encoding.Default.GetBytes(myString);

The problem is compatibility with OpenSSL. If I choose to UTF8 encode it
(first choice), the text I extract using OpenSSL is not correct and it
still seems UTF8 encoded.
