a standard .txt or .htm file, but Unicode is supported.
Look in the Utilities Library under the "UNICODE files" section.
It "offers Clips that let you easily read and write text in
UNICODE format." You can drag/drop the Clips to your default
ClipBar to access them easily. The Clips are:
Import UNICODE text
Save as UNICODE file
See http://www.notetab.net/html/clipbar.htm for very basic help
in building a Clip and a lot more about the Clip bar that is in
NoteTab Pro/Std. http://www.notetab.net/order
When you open Unicode files in NoteTab the characters that
NoteTab cannot convert will be converted to a "?".
Until you know each Unicode file itself and know exactly what
NoteTab does with it, I suggest that you make copies of the files
so that you do not loose any data should that happen. Help states
in Options | General...
Protect Unicode Files:
When NoteTab opens Unicode files, it has to convert them to the
ANSI character set, which handles much fewer characters. As a
result, the conversion process may drop non-ANSI and cause the
loss of information. When this setting is checked, Unicode files
are opened in Read-Only mode, which protects the file from
changes. If you know that your Unicode documents will not loose
important information during the conversion process, you can
uncheck this option in order to open such files in editable mode.
