I really don't have any idea what you're asking about.

Subject: [duxhelp] Plaguing overworked programmers with inane requests.

I really do want my left-handed giggle sprocket encoding.  I am trying to
import Unicode text to save it into languages that don't play by the rules,
E.G. Russian, Greek, Arabic and Hebrew, circumventing any MSWord add-ons. I
think I've done this pretty successfully with some translations of a text on
the Unicode Consortiums web-site. I say I think, because the braille feels
as if it is okay, and I can always inventory with the displayed characters
with the Duscii tables.
I am trying, among other things to come up with a rough and ready
translation of the Koran, and polytonic Greek versions of the Iliad and
Odyssey, the latter not likely to translate.  However, the text is in html
entity refs, and apart from manually converting these into the relevnt UTF-8
characters,I know of no way to do this under Win98.  If it can be done under
XP, I'll either wait till I win the lottery, or write a macro for my Dos
Text editor, to do a series of search and replaces.
Does anyone have any ideas.
