Unicode support

Here are some notes and guidelines about Unicode support in Aida:

  1. Use Unicode only internally in Smalltalk
  2. convert external sources to and from Unicode when interfaces to external world
  3. Aida/Web uses UTF-8 encoding to interface your internal Smalltalk domain model in Unicode to a web

There are quite some relics from the past regarding codepage support in class side of AIDASite but this will soon be obsoleted and Aida will strictly use only UTF-8 encoding.
