Thank you very much Philippe. There is still something I do not understand:

- What is the encoding used in WideString ? You told it is unicode, but 
what is unicode if not UTF-{8,16,32} ?
- If the web browser accept and answers in UTF-8 and if Squeak stores 
UTF-8 un bytestrings, why one need any conversion ?

In fact, my problem is I don't understand why conversions are necessary. 
Everything should be UTF-8 and no question has to be asked.

Thank you
