How to put unicode text into a field?

Hi!

Learning polish I want to use unicode text in my stack.

I have a lot of cds with polish vocabularies and now I want to list  
them in a table with this code:

repeat with i = 1 to num of marked cds
   if fld "VocTable" of stack "VocListing" is empty then
     put fld "German" & TAB into fld "VocTable" of stack "VocListing"
   else
     put fld "German" & TAB after fld "VocTable" of stack "VocListing"
   end if
   put fld "Polish" & CR after fld "VocTable" of stack "VocListing"
end repeat

Although in my fields the polish text is well readable in the table  
the special polish letters are transformed to unreadable special  
charakters.

I studied the stack "Unicode in Revolution: Taming the Beast" by Devin  
Asay
but I only found the code:

 > set the unicodeText of fld "VocTable" to the unicodeText of of fld  
"Polish" <

... but the content of my table-field is compound of the contents of  
two or two hundred fields.

Do anybody knows a solution?

Thanks
Reinhold
