How to get rid of an annoying warning...

Since Delphi now supports WideString and WideChar characters by default, there's a warning which just annoys me every time I get it: the "WideChar reduced to byte char in set expression".
For example in the following code snippet:

S: String;
if S[1] in ['0'..'9'] then ...
I've looked at a number of ways to get rid of the warning (feel free to let me know, thanks in advance), but so far the only way I found was to uncheck the "WideChar reduced to byte char in set expression" warning in the Project Options | Compiler Messages dialog:

Note that I've also checked the default option, so I will never see this warning again!

If anyone knows a better way to remove the warning - preferably by fixing the code, I would welcome a hint.
