Hi Charles,

You are right, but as I understand it from Derek's question, his 
text file is only an intermediate result for use on the same 
platform. Still, even if he is going to use the text on a 
different platform, while the text being plain ascii, htmlText 
or even a script to convert the text might be a better solution 
than unicode.

I think we need a little more information from Derek to decide 
what is the best method for him.
