Actually you need to put a zero at the beginning of the number. Without = the zero, Windows translates the number from the ancient DOS codepage into = the Windows character set, and substitutes symbols like + or - for characters that have no equivalent. So for instance, alt-131 is =E2, but alt-0131 is= =83 (looks like an italic f). --=20 languages of Kolagia---> = +---<>--- Thryomanes /"If all Printers were determin'd not to print = any (Herman Miller) / thing till they were sure it would offend no = body, moc.oi @ rellimh <-/ there would be very little printed." -Ben = Franklin
