That's ok, cause that was the goal for version 1.0 but as far as I can see it's (sorry) nearly useless. I'm not that deep in the NTS code to be sure, but because it's a reimplementation I could image that NTS simulates ASCII-code instead of using Unicode. So there would be no additional value. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Christian
