I've also discovered a complimenting issue, which may be related:

When copying Unicode data from LiveCode fields, pasting into Word 
renders the text very badly, as though the encoding type is either 
incorrect or absent in the Clipboard.

Anyone know a reliable way to copy Unicode text from a LiveCode field to 
paste into Word?

Is this an engine bug, or a Richard bug?
