Thanks for that. As Monte said, it turns out "file" works, but I didn't 
expect it because the entry for textDecode talks about binary files. If 
the dictionary user notes still worked I'd add a comment about that. It 
seems the LC team is ahead of me and has made "open file" and url 
("file:") compatible with unicode text. I should have known.

I read the change notes when they first came out but obviously I forgot 
a bunch of it. I'll read your link.
