Maybe you liked it; but my experience of non-Latin text of all forms is 
that it is best to stick with
the unicode commands 100% of the time.

> But now when I put the text into a field containing more than 1 line, the text becomes that gibberish (loks kind of like oriental characters and wierd symbols), as if I was making a mistake with unicode text like I used to. But this only happens when a capital letter is present! If I eliminat the caps, it works, and it also works with a cap in a single field with just 1 line!
