That's an interesting idea but I'm unclear on how it would work.  If 
"char 1 of word 2" fails in a variable why would it work if I get the 
text from a field?  I was under the impression that when referencing a 
field the data is obtained first before operations are performed on it. 
  But I could well be mistaken if they've added some deep revisions to 
chunk expressions for Unicode.

Anyone here have examples of using chunk expressions with Unicode?
