If you want to do any poking around in the text, having it be UTF-8 (a non-fixed size encoding) is a huge pain in the butt. In my opinion, Unicode is it, period. Its the future, and everyone should start dealing with it. Unicode based wide character APIs are available almost everywhere so that you can work directly with the Unicode until it actually has to go to some system API that requires it be in a local code page. ---------------------------------------- Dean Roddey Software Weenie IBM Center for Java Technology - Silicon Valley roddey@u... xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
