    Hi Daryl,

    So do I. Now I type AltGr 219 = and AltGr 176 = and probably you see HG>them as you mentioned above.

    I see them in OLX -- Windows Notepad apparently won't handle the
    high ascii characters.

    I haven't checked how the Notepad works in Win10 but in XP it faithfully
    read PC8 (ASCII) characters, while Word or any other Windows editor did
    not show, for example the european accented letters correctly.

    As you are using OLX you see these characters , , , correctly
    as I have entered them on the keyboard.

    I can (could) read/print out a file containing those letters corectly in
    the old Notepad.

    Hi, Holger,

    I'm sticking with Windows 7, 32-bit. I can't see throwing out
    perfectly good working hardware and software, just to satisfy
    Microsoft's bottom line.

    As you are using OLX you see these characters , , , correctly
    as I have entered them on the keyboard.

    Looks like to sets of strange A's, a set of strange O's, and a set of
    strange U's -- "strange" in this case for high ascii characters.

    I can (could) read/print out a file containing those letters corectly in HG>the old Notepad.

    Andy Stewart, who did the DreamNet doors years ago, did a utility
    that would show all the high ascii characters. However, as with all his
    doors, you have to run the TP7P5FIX TSR, or it won't run on a CPU faster
    than 233 Mhz. Plus, the doors don't have a fossil driver...but, under Synchronet (which I have), they are set up and run like they did have a
    fossil.

    GM Daryl,

    I'm sticking with Windows 7, 32-bit. I can't see throwing out
    perfectly good working hardware and software, just to satisfy
    Microsoft's bottom line.

    A couple of years ago I received a laptop with Win10pro installed and
    found it usable so I bought a second-hand tower with Win7 and upgraded
    it to Win10pro while the upgrade was still free.

    I don't regret it since it's a huge step forward since the XPpro I have
    on a previous laptop.

    It, Win10, isn't free from faults so I couldn't imagine running my BBS
    under Windows, so it still runs reliably under OS/2.

    If you don't see a's, o's and u's with dots and one a with a ring on top
    then your editor/reader doesn't correctly show high ASCII (PC8) chrtrs.

    Well, amateur radio operators are some of the most CHEAPSKATE...er...FRUGAL... individuals you'll ever meet (hi hi).

    It, Win10, isn't free from faults so I couldn't imagine running my BBS HG>under Windows, so it still runs reliably under OS/2.

    If it ain't broke (if it works), don't fix it.

    If you don't see a's, o's and u's with dots and one a with a ring on top HG>then your editor/reader doesn't correctly show high ASCII (PC8) chrtrs.

    Well, I saw them just fine in OLX.

    Yes of course, ham radio isn't a cheap hobby if you want to keep your
    station up-to-date.
