Christian, 

Thanks for the tip. Your help is much appreciated. Further to your reply, I
would like to ask what the differences of UTF-8 are compared to Big5 Code.
Apparently (from my research on Big5) it is the most commonly used unicode
for chinese characters. Kindly advice.


Thank you once again.


Regards,
amoebia.
