I came across a statement as below:
The control string #89#111#117 is equivalent to the quoted string 'You'

Hi,

This 'Control String' as you have called it, enables you to put characters into a string that are not typable from the keyboard.
Eg.

MessageDlg('This is a dialog box' + #10+ 'That spans over 2 lines',mtInformation,[mbOK],0);

This dialog box now has a linefeed control char in the middle and forces the info onto 2 lines.
It could also be #13 which is carrage Return.
