Hi folks,
I’m using LiveCode to summarise text from HTML documents into csv summary files 
and am noticing that when I extract strings from html documents stored on disk 
- rather than visiting the sites via the browser widget & grabbing the HTML 
text - weird characters being inserted in place of what appear to be ‘regular’ 

The number of characters inserted can run into the thousands per instance, 
making my csv ‘summary’ file run into gigabytes! Has anyone seen the following 
type of string before, happen to know what might be causing it and offer a fix? 

I’ve tried deliberately setting UTF-8 on the extracted strings, with put 
textEncode(tString, "UTF-8") into tString. Currently I’m not attempting to 
force any text format on the local HTML documents.

Thanks & regards,
