First, many thanks to Mike Bonner for the google book api. Spent an
interesting 24-hours learning about it. And, as Mike said, the api
result is much easier to filter.
Except for one thing. Handling Japanese text.
The Japanese text appears fine if I use a google api url with my
Chrome browser, copy the results directly from the browser window, and
then paste from the LC IDE into a field-object.
But if I use the same url in a script like this:
put "https://www.googleapis.com/books/ETC" into tURL
get url tURL
put it into field X
then the Japanese text gets garbled, with the rest of the text fine.
Any ideas how I can get my script to work with Japanese text as nicely
as simply copy-pasting?
