RE: "Unicode Text" type in WordPerfect

Unicode comes in many encoding forms. Assuming what WordPerfect produces is
Little-Endian UCS-2, Word97 or Word2000 can read it. If it is Big-Endian
UCS-2 or UTF-8, then Word2000 can read it, but not Word97 (without some
contortions). On Windows, Little-Endian UCS-2 is by far the most common type
of Unicode text file.
