And I don't even install 6.  I tried it, and the phantom strict-compile bug
was far, far worse.  So bad, in fact, that I would have to open stacks in
5.5 to recomplie, then reopen in 6 . . . (this also meant commenting out
the (then) three lines of code for pixel scaling).  Also, some things were
just *too* slow (there was a thread about something with a button that was
something like 400ms on 6 and 2ms on 5).

I haven't used any of them :)   The older properties would be retained,
wouldn't they?

All I want from unicode (or whatever) is to deal with stuff pasted in from
fools who used microsoft character sets on web pages or pdf documents meant
to be used on multiple platforms.
(particularly the section symbol and quotes)
