Hi Nicolas,

I use Unicode text successfully all the time in 2.9. I know there were  
some improvements made to unicode implementation in 2.7. Can you give  
us some idea of what text isn't working right? I find it's generally  
more reliable to load unicode text into fields and buttons after  
launch, rather than entering it during development and then displaying  
it in a standalone. There are lots of issues to worry about, from OS  
to processor differences, for example.
