I have to chime in with Jan here. I recently was debugging a problem
where the EOF character was getting into a field and into the middle of
my string variables. Turns out that when you copy paste from MS Excel
cell contents on OS X, you get all kinds of weird control characters
including EOF. The field just displays it as text though.
