You make a good point Bob... I do tend to go begging here. My problem is 
that I don't know enough about some things to even know what to search for.

I never thought of a curly quote as a unicode character  I always think 
of it as an ANSI... And Spanish fits into ISO 8859-1 as does the curly 
quote: these are single byte characters; so why do we need uniEncode? 
But, you are right I should to ask these questions in the PostGreSQL 
forums and not here.

Probably I should ( and usually do) use my Experts' Exchange account for 
this type of thing, but sometimes I think that these threads end up 
helping other LiveCoders. and If we do it outside this list then it is 
not seen.

I know I get a lot out of responses to "dumb questions" by newbies, even 
though I did not post them....
