Thanks again, I've gone and given it 5 votes:-)

Yes, that does seem to be a logical explanation, and also one of the reasons
why I tried it with BBEdit as well with the extra step of converting the
Text to ASCII, just to make sure it was nothing but ASCII. Even if this is
the cause, as you infer, it suggest that Rev's filter is set a little too
tight, and by resolving this I'm hoping well experience a little more
consistency in copy/paste between other apps and Rev.

I'll be keeping an eye on 2602 ;-)
