The Windows .h files are set up so that MessageBox is a macro that resolves to 
MessageBoxW or MessageBoxA depending on another macro setting. I've never liked 
that practice - preferring to call the desired function explicitly (whether that 
is dirty or clean is not of much import, it is what it is as Microsoft saw fit 
to name it).
