As could definitely replace all of the binary code with the replacement
characters that NoteTab used for display purposes when opening the file so
that it would indeed be functionally destroyed/corrupted/damaged. Maybe
"Strip HTML" might be modified to work on these files but then again the
code required might not be practical to impliment for one reason or
another. The block on Saving should stay the way it is.

- Hi Jody and Tom,
I just checked this out and you can corrupt a file by saving. I assumed
that Save was blocked but it is not. If you load a file with binary
conversion you get the warning that binary characters have been converted
to... and then the file is there. You can Save As but the Save item is
greyed out. Select Document|Readonly to make the file editable. Now type
a space and then backspace. The file has now been changed and you can Save
it over the original and all of the binary characters in the original file
will be replaced by the replacement that NoteTab made when it opened the
file and you will have a corrupted file.

saying since Strip HTML makes a new document and closes the old,
then Read-Only should not matter.
