Re^2: Text File Encoding under Windowsby pat_mc (Pilgrim)

Thanks, almut -
This solved part of the problem. The file is now getting read in OK and the expected regex matches occur. However, the output is still causing problem because the non-ASCII characters in it do not get represented correctly. I have tried the following two approaches:
1) Printing out to the DOS console and redirecting the output from there into a file. The result looks fine - if it were not for the special characters that get represented as EF,FC etc.
2) Printing to a UTF-16 encoded file with the following code:
The result was an output file which represented all special characters correctly but contained a line of empty boxes in every second line.
Can you please advise what I need to do to fix both output variants?
Thanks again for your help!
