Hi Kee and Alex,

The original documents I'm working with are UTF8, so that's that I've 
been using. So converting them to UTF16 is recommended? I'll try that.

Alex, desktop is version 8 something, and the server is the one 
installed on the on-rev host; can't remember what the key in $_Server 
for than info is, and Googling failed me this time...

My test code is "put codepoint 500 to 550 of variable1" and the webpage shows: �。こうして夕があり、朝があった。�  The beginning and ending kanji got split in half. Identical results to "put char 500 to 550."
