Damn UTF-16...

It seems OSX uses UTF-16 encoding for everything so what I will have to do is 'convert' them over to UTF-8 which may sound easy enough BUT searching the net chucks up LOADS of useless code but im still looking. What I might have to do is read the data and whack it out to a temp file then read that then remove it as the whole Unicode thing isnt that helpful.

I will keep looking to see if this can be avoided, I hope so as I dont like temp files as it seems like a cop-out for something if you have to resort to using them.

More soon...
