There's a good write-up about why this problem happened here: http://cboard.cprogramming.com/cplusplus-programming/145590-non-english-characters-cout-2.html#post1086757 Basically, Visual Studio assumes any narrow-character arrays contain only local encoding (e.g., ASCII in this case). It takes anything that doesn't fall into that category and spits it out as '?'. When that happens, our localized string lookup fails and we get the assertion. I didn't notice this because I run my tests in Release mode. :-(

It depends on the application. Here I want to just use the existing localized strings so that we can reuse any localized version of the WebKit strings file without having to retranslate it.
