Hello Everyone,
Thanks. Ash, i'll try your function and see how that works. The
original content came from word documents, but they were pasted in to
a text editor in this case notetab light. In the meta of the site the
character set is utf-8 I was told it was better to use that than
iso8859-1 if this is wrong i'd definitely like to know about it.
Any other suggestions let me know.
Thanks a lot.
