String encoding UTF8/vsUTF16

I notice that whenever you get a string from .Net you convert it to UTF8 before giving it to v8.  My (very limited) understanding of v8 suggests that internally it will handle UTF16 unicode or UTF8.  In that case, wouldn't things run faster if you just left the strings in UTF16?

I guess you mean the string conversion from v8 to .NET in  JavascriptInterop::ConvertFromV8, thanks for the remark. The fix will be effective in the next revision of the project that should be out pretty soon.
