Personally I do the conversion in FillInData. If you are creating the  
array that you are assigning to the Data Grid by hand then you can  
convert at that point as well. I am usually fetching data from the  
database using SQL Yoga though.

What If I Need to Work With htmlText, rtfText or unicodeText?: < 

See the getprop/setprop handlers below. Using the handlers you can  
have code in FillInData that looks like this:

on FillInData pData
     set the uUTF8Text of field "Name" of me to pData
end FillInData

You will need to convert when setting or getting the text of a field.  
I use the attached set/getProps for working with UTF8 text.

setprop uUTF8Text pText
     set the unicodetext of the target to uniencode(pText, "UTF8")
end uUTF8Text

getprop uUTF8Text
     return _UTF16ToUTF8(the unicodetext of the target)
end uUTF8Text
