text fields *after* the CA property occurs in the text.
But there is one more argument against UTF-16: the parser should be able
to find the end of a text property by looking for Latin1 ']' [*] (i.e.
without knowing about the encoding of the text) I am not sure that UTF-16
has no byte value of ']' occuring e.g. as part of some chinese character.
So the argument for Latin1 compatibility is a very strong one.
[*] actually: Latin1 ']' that is not preceeded by Latin1 '\'
