Hi, Im a bit confused by the texfile object. When I read from a  
textfile, characters outside the ascii standard seems not to be  
supported (replaced by the square). But I can write a textfile, or at  
least send those characters outside of ascii standard to the text  
object. And here is the strangeness, the written text file contains  
totally messed up character maps (ç is placed as Á etc.). Any reason  
for this?

Id really appreciate someone to explain. Im doing this project  
visualising lots of names, from different nations, spanish, chech,  
french. Characters outside the English alphabet. Im reading this from  
a .csv file and as you can understand, I will need to format it in a  
way that lets it enter into PD.

Kind of stuck with this problem.
