on a side note regarding shell - I just ran this from the message box:

put shell("man zip")



and got this text:

----------------------------(clip)--------------------------------

ZIP(1L)
ZIP(1L)

       zip - package and compress (archive) files

what is the text encoding in the man pages?  In terminal the doubled
characters show up as boldface.
