Unicode woes

Hi Richmond,

It doesn't work because the first char actually gets the first byte and thus you only get the first half of the first character. 

This might work, depending on the textFont setting and maybe writing direction:

on mouseUp
	set the unicodetext of fld "xxx" to char 1 to 2 of the unicodetext of fld "zzz"
end mouseUp

Best regards,
