Viktoras,

To enter unicode characters in a field directly, you have to change  
the keyboard settings of your operating system.

I didn't say you can set the itemDel to uniencode(tab). I said you  
have to uniencode the itemDel, like:

put uniencode(the itemDel) into myItemDel

and then find the encoded string in your field, e.g. using the offset  
function. Read the information about offset in the docs. You might  
need to use a repeat loop to find the right item. Sorry, I don't hav  
time to write an example script now.

I don't know about a good introduction to unicode in Rev.

Mark
