Unicode? What Unicode?

Well, it looks like the Unicode conversion has been back-burnered for the moment so we can take care of more pressing matters.

In the meantime, is there anyone out there who has worked with the old Formula One spreadsheet OCX from Actuate? We're trying to figure out what support it has for MBCS and Unicode, but since the company abandoned the product (after signing us to an expensive license with the prospect of upgrades; then charged us more for a terminal source code license to the non-upgraded, non-supported product when they exited the market), we're having to work this out ourselves.

The real shame about it is that this mass of unsupported source code is still the best spreadsheet control on the market. Sad, isn't it?
