Thanks for the link. Yes, I'm very familiar and comfortable with unicode. After what Trevor pointed out it took me very little time to put together a function that performs the actions I need.

However, it would appear that Rev renders unicode characters *incredibly* slow. :-(

I have a field in a data grid template that needs to display unicode characters. Sadly, regardless of caching controls, fixed row heights, whatever, scrolling the data grid or resizing it is just unbearable (note: the function I wrote is called as outside the data grid behavior and the only thing done in the data grid is a set the unicodeText ... to pDataArray["text"]).

Hopefully there's yet something else that I'm missing.
