One of my old chestnuts crops up again:-

on mouseDown
  set the useUnicode to true
  answer file "CHOOSE A FILE TO IMPORT"
  if the result = "cancel" then exit mouseDown
  put it into NAMESTR 
  open file NAMESTR for read
  read from file NAMESTR until EOF 
  put it into the field "fENTER"
end mouseDown

open a Bulgarian .txt or .rtf file . . .

and I get something (on Mac OS X and Win XP) that
looks rather like ancient Egyptian heiroglyphs . . .

so, obviously, I am going badly wrong

help gratefully recieved,

sincerely, Richmond Mathewson
