How would you do that? I mean, would it have a substitution table for the Unicode characters beyond ASCII? While you're at it, do you know, or have you made a program that can word-wrap text (not on screen, but actually inserting line breaks)? It should be easy, but I've tried with VBA and the resulting program somehow mangles the output in one way or another every time! --Pablo Flores
