Importing and export text with foreign accents

I'm having a little trouble importing a tab deliminted text file
(saved from excel), having rev organize it, then saving it out as an
xml file.

The import and text manipulation works just fine, but when it comes
time to export the data out to text files, all the foreign characters
(accents, umlauts, etc,) get converted to squares or questions marks.

Initially I tried straight open, write, and close file statements.

Then I tried unicodeText and uniEncode/uniDecode statements and it's
still a no go.

Is there a tech sheet somewhere that's explains more about how runrev
deals with special characters?

Any insight would be appreciated!
