You want questions?  I got a truck-load of 'em...

For instance...  I have characters from several languages in the text I'm
working with: Roman, French (accented), Chinese, and Russian.  When I set
the unicodeText of a field to the text, the accented French characters
render incorrectly.  Looking in the source text file, it appears the
original French characters may have been reformatted when saving the file as
UTF-16.  Is there any way to keep the French characters intact within the
unicode text?

Thanks & Regards,
