Hi Edgar,

I do not do much cross platform work in squeak so I don't run into the translation problem.

And I don't have a very good way of handling it.

On my iMac I use a shareware editor called texedit :

http://www.tex-edit.com/ [^]

Which has been very cross platform aware and knows to translate from pc to unix to mac fairly well.

I mention this because it is provides some nice external tools for translating line endings etc. Not a bad research tool for font and character set stuff. (It also has spanish versions)

The things I am aware of are:

Mac's tend to use mac roman in their font sets. Squeak started out in mac roman and is now suppose to be standardized to latin-1 and whatever the I18n stuff requires. The problem you describe sounds like it falls into that catagory.

Hth, -Jer

Are the problems only with line endings or do the quote marks look funny also? Maybe upload a problem file?
