Convert UTF-8 and ASCII encoded bytes back to UTF-16 encoded string

    public static void Main() 
    {        
        using (StreamWriter output = new StreamWriter("practice.txt"))

            // Create and write a string containing the symbol for Pi.
            string srcString = "Area = u03A0r^2";

            // Convert the UTF-16 encoded source string to UTF-8 and ASCII.
            byte[] utf8String = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(srcString);
            byte[] asciiString = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(srcString);
            
            // Write the UTF-8 and ASCII encoded byte arrays.

            // string and write.
