No, no, don't lose your mind, you just got it back after a vacation! I'm 
glad to see you here again.

In LiveCode 5.5 all the unicode syntax was altered in order to improve 
how it works and increase its functionality. So search the dictionary 
for "unicode" and see which syntax has replaced the stuff you were using 
before. You shouldn't have to change much to get it back to how it was.
