    As much as I like BabelPad (it has replaced SC UniPad as my favorite
    full-service-Unicode editor), I have had serious problems pasting text
    into BabelPad from the clipboard. Sometimes there is a large chunk of
    random text after the "real" data; there have been other symptoms as
    well. I assume Andrew will be able to resolve these when he has a
    chance to update the program.

    Except in the presence of bugs such as this, Unicode data can be copied
    and pasted from one Unicode-aware program to another Unicode-aware
    program with 100% fidelity, regardless of the encoding model.
