For several versions of FM, the RTF Japanese filters (both import and export, I believe) came from a different vendor than the regular RTF filters and were much more robust. File imports/exports that failed or gave poor results using the regular RTF filters would often work much better using the RTF Japanese filters instead. The RTF Japanese filters handle Western characters just fine. They certainly don't translate your document into Japanese. :-) Richard Richard G.
