Hello,

This is fairly close to something I was trying earlier, except more elegant=
=2E=20
This seems to be munging my spaces though, as I take it the space code is=20
less than 46? Have to look for a chart.

Is unpacking as UTF8 going to be problematic if the string is actually UTF1=
6=20
as Philip points out?

I will play some more, thanks guys...
=2Dd
=2D-=20
