I don't think there would be a problem since our API is giving to the
applications that use us UTF-8 encoded strings. Internally, we use
mainly UTF-8 with the capacity to append to the UTF-8 string a character
encoded UCS4 that gets converted into UTF-8 on the fly.
I have built the 0.10.5 fribidi.exe as statically linked executable and
it worked well with UTF-8 encoded text documents. Sure, the UTF-8 was
not displayed correctly unless one opens it in a web-browser or in an
Unicode enabled editor, but this is really not a big deal, since libwpd
does not do any GUI work.
