Renamed a type definition in Code Snippets Database
Renamed TDynByteArray type to TBytes to make more compatible with the equivalent type in Delphi 2009 and later and also to prepare the ground for some forthcoming new snippets. This revision ensures the TBytes type is available on non-Unicode compilers. The TryHexToBytes and HexToBytes routines were also changed to use TBytes instead of TDynByteArray. This is one of those rare changes to the database that is not backwards compatible. Existing code that relied on TDynByteArray will fail to compile unless the type names are changed or TDynByteArray is manually defined in terms of TBytes.
