in reply to script inserts \x00 bytes on WinXP

I've looked a comparative ASCII table between Mac and Win. x00 is the null on both platforms. xb0 is infinity on Mac, but has no correspondence on Win. So probably on Win x00 comes out in place of xb0. A solution might be to global substitute xb0 with x27, the "degree", before any processing. And probably you will be off.

    Byte 0xB0 exists on Windows as well. It may not display the same, but instances of 0xB0 don't suddenly become 0x00 based on the OS being used to read the file.
