Unicode revisited, this time with htmlText

Thanks for the explanation, Tuviah.  I know now how to do it, but I 
still think this is horrendously impractical.  As I said, if I'm 
getting Unicode strings from mySQL and want to display them as htmlText 
-- I would have to convert every single character to its charToNum: 
that's not very efficient at all.

I know that I am definitely NOT objective since my programming in 
Revolution has to do exclusively with foreign languages and non English 
scripts at the moment, but I strongly believe that an application which 
claims Unicode support needs to make it equally easy for programmers to 
deal with all languages/scripts... that's the point of Unicode, after 
all.

All best,
Toma
