Dear Stephen,

Many thanks for the suggestion:

I tried it, and it doesn't work. When the file name is a "ĉ" (c+circumflex), for instance, it encodes it as 2 separate characters: a "c" and a "^" circumflex. When I URLdecode it, therefore, I end up with a "c^". The name of the file is different, and Revolution's functions (get url, there is a file, etc.) cannot find the file...

Please do send any more suggestions, though. I really want this to work, and I'll try anything!!!  :)

Kind Regards,
