It's not as terrible as you fear. You have to make a couple of
educated guesses about the language, but just do this:
Paste your unicode entities into a field, say, "code" and surround
them with html tags:
Then make another field "final" and do this:
set the htmltext of fld "final" to fld "code"
If they don't look quite right, try different fonts in the face
attribute or other languages in the lang attribute. For example,
Chinese Simplified is "zh-CN" and Traditional is "zh-TW". Google html
language codes if you need to try others.
Now you have real unicode text and you can save it or do whatever you
need by referring to the unicodeText of fld "final".
