This sounds suspiciously like a unicode issue to me. What does the
message box tell you if you type:
put the textfont of fld <whatever>
If the text isn't all one font, you should see "mixed". When you paste
unicode text into a field, the textfont will change to a unicode font
for the pasted chunk. If you can calculate it, try getting the text
offsets for a pasted chunk and ask the message box this:
the textfont of char <x> to <y> of fld <whatever>
What do you get back? Is it just something like "Ariel" or is two words
separated by a comma?
