I dropped the thread on this discussion, but will attempt to resurrect it.
Stuart is correct - at the bottom line text to fax means getting text to any
bitmap graphics format, and from then on it is easy. So to restate the
question - what server side application will go from Unicode to a bitmap
format. This is a component of a server side application, so solutions such
as displaying it in word and taking a screen capture are not applicable.
