Filenames again

I work mainly in SuperCard... same issues here... can display chars  
in UTF but not UTF aware at the function level.  Makes text parsing  
almost impossible.  The chars are counted but you can't find out what  
they are.  For instance:

CharToNum(char 3 of myTxt)

... yields "0" if char 3 is unicode!
