That's what I did with a hex/ASCII editor, more or less. I would have
preferred Norton, but since I got the file via email rather than a diskette,
it would have been overkill anyway.

I know where you're coming from, John. In a past life, I rescued more than
my fair share of graduate theses using Norton Utilities.

The hex editor, Zap-It, can be downloaded from
http://www.elmerproductions.com. The program is freeware, but the author
appreciates receiving donations of stamps (used or not) for his collection.
I have no affiliation with this site; I'm just happy to have the hex editor.

Cheers ... Kim

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from a
personality, and an obnoxious one at that.-- me
