most likely how rev displays characters in a font.
+ html or rtf involved. This is an old MC problem.
it's something to do with spacing. Maybe tabs.
Just be carefull how much data you copy paste to
rev from excel - it can crash it all. Once you
see text go haywire, save everything...
Pasting can be controlled, but well behaved stacks
have to watch out for this!
So for example, if you have more than 64Kbs in one
line in custom prop, dont try to display it in
the property palette... or put it in the msg...
HC used to shield us from this by stripping (without
warning) the extra information off the field.
Rev is a bit lower level here ;)
