More questions regarding Server oddities

Thanks all!

Just to re-cap, I'm having two problems on this little project. 
1) Showing UTF-8 correctly. I have "solved" this by using the 
older revolution server that On-Rev provides. 2) My text list of 
programs, from which I retrieve program title and host, suddenly 
'disappeared' as far as the script is concerned.

Tried Lyn's and Mike's suggestion to access the file directly 
(didn't know you could do that!) and it is working again!

Just in case those curious would like to see the problem, here is 
the script. It now dumps the contents of vlist; of course that 
will be cleaned up. But I will leave that script as it is now on 
the server for awhile....

Not sure what will happen with linewraps, but here goes*

         <meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; 


--get list of programs
put "The command <BR>put URL 
'' into vlist<Br> results 
in vlist containing this: <BR>"

put URL "" into vlist
put vlist
put URL "binfile:ynh5list_UTF8.txt" into vlist
put vlist

--calculate date and time for Japan
put the date && the time into vdate
convert vdate to dateitems
add 8 to item 4 of vdate
convert vdate to dateitems

--If date is Sunday, change to prev Saturday (not aired on Sundays)
if last item of vdate is "1" then subtract 1 from item 3 of vdate
convert vdate to dateitems

--create a variable with the broadcast date in FileMaker format 
(program list exported from Filemaker)
put item 1 of vdate & "/" & item 2 of vdate & "/" & item 3 of 
vdate into vFMdate

--get today's program information from CSV list
put line lineoffset(vFMdate,vlist) of vlist into vtoday

--add "0" to single digit days and months
if length(item 2 of vdate) = 1 then put "0" before item 2 of vdate
if length(item 3 of vdate) = 1 then put "0" before item 3 of vdate

if vtoday is empty then
put "番組を見つかりませんでした。申し訳ありません。" into vtoday
put item 1 of vtoday into vHosobi
put item 2 of vtoday into vTitle
put item 3 of vtoday into vHost
replace quote with empty in vHosobi
replace quote with empty in vTitle
replace quote with empty in vHost

put "" & item 1 of vdate & "_" & 
item 2 of vdate & item 3 of vdate & ".mp3" into vfile
end if
put vHosobi & "<BR>"
put vTitle & "<BR>"
put vHost & "<BR>"
put vfile & "<BR>"


<audio src=<?rev put quote & vfile & quote ?> controls=''
