RTF text

Mr. X,

I can do this if Revolution doesn't. I used to do it for the high ISO
characters in a similar HyperCard program in about 1990. But sometime, like
about 1992, someone brought out an XCMD that would recognize the high ISO
characters properly. I think Rinaldi also had one. I haven't checked if it
works for Revolution.

The question is whether Revolution does this. The Revolution documentation
does not mention this as a limitation of rtfText, though it does mention
other limitations. Therefore, I am wondering if it is a limitation of Word,
or me, or what.


I don't think one can consider this as a virtue of Revolution. If it
doesn't do this, it would be a better tool if it did.

Did you make any adjustments of this nature to the output of that stack.
