Hi Janko,

maybe you missed my post of May 10th (or I missed your reply) but the
non ASCCI character problem is serious to me, Germans will enter
Umlauts. That's why at present I try everything I do in both versions.

to quote myself:

The other reason was your reply to Germán Arduino on using the (older)
beta for production:
JM>    - there are two products here, one is Aida, the other is Scribo. Aida
JM> 5.6 is stable, 6.0 in beta. Scribo is in beta. And you are arguing about
JM> your failure with a beta. Remember, our beta is not the same as Google
JM> beta :)

Sorry for nitpicking I'm preparing something planned for production.

Besides my own application I want to use Aida + WebCharts at a
customer where right now Squeak extracts quality data from a database,
writes an ASCII file which is then opened with Excel to create the

While my own app will still need several months, the latter looks like
work I could complete next weekend.

So what's your "official" recommendation?
