That's true for me anyway ;-)

Just a thought: Mark, are you using the actual BDE engine itself 
(TTable, TQuery and such), or are you using the ADO components 
(TADOConnection in combination with e.g. a TADOQuery or TADODataSet)?

We have been working with the combo ADO components and ODBC Unicode 
driver for quite some time here, and it has always worked. (We started 
using this combination somewhere around postgres version 7.x-ish)
Only with the release of the 8.x version of postgres and the new driver 
archticture attempt, we have had some problems conscerning the blob/lo 
datatype, but with the latest version of the ODBC (08.02.x) those 
problems seem to have been solved.

The point is that you can work with Delphi/ADO components *and* use the 
Unicode driver. The only extra we did was SET CLIENT_ENCODING TO 
'latin1' as extra parameter.
