It also outputs hexadecimal and decimal HTML entity codes
&#(x)00; and so on at your choice. But I agree it's a bit of
a problem even so if you're on Windows 98. I'm still on XP
and probably will untill something better than Vista shows
up. I think I'll sooner tackle the Linux learning curve
before 'upgrading' to Vista...

You just need to co copy and paste HTML entity codes. Can
your browser handle Unicode?
