By the way, I was wondering about the following:
When somebody feels like sending some Unicode on this
list, wouldn'it be possible he justs sends, either the
hexadecimal, either the decimal codes, separated by a
blank or a comma, and then somebody would write a nice
little macro allowing, once you pasted these codes
into a Word document, to translate them automatically
into Unicode in this Word document ?
In Windows XP, when you do Insert a Special Code, the
system shows you the exact code you are about to
I believe it shouldn't be that hard, but I'm no used
to writing Word macros.
For ex (if I remember, because I have not XP at hand
just now), you could send:
Then you could copy and paste this into a Word
Document, and execute a macro that would show you the
actual letters (in that case, the first letters of
Cyrillic alphabet, if I'm not mistaken).
