I recently had another similar problem, which was not Sigil's fault.
I imported a text file, and it was full of bizarre character. There was no BOM marker at the start of the text file, and translating the file into UTF-8 did nothing.

So I looked at one of the garbage characters with a hex editor, and did some research on Google.

As it turns out, the file was in this obsolete format called "Mac OS Roman" or "Macroman".

Lucky for me, Python comes with a codec that understands MacRoman. So I wrote a quick script that opened the file with codecs.open('myfile.txt', "r", 'mac-roman'), read it in, and wrote it out into an output file created with codecs.open('myfile_CLEAN.txt', 'w', 'utf-8') Problem solved.

Yes, ePub as ecosystem. I've been thrashing about in it with my hip-boots. I need to stand still and observe more. Thanks.

Seeing as how I'll be going on a two-week vacation starting tomorrow and that there's quite a bit of work I want to include in the next release, I'd say about a month. Eyeball guesstimate.

Well, do enjoy your vacation! I wish they'd let me take two weeks in a row at work!
