Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the ISOToMac function to translate data that was created on a Unix or Windows system to the Mac OS character set.

Parameters:

The ISOString is any string.

Value:

The ISOToMac function returns the ISOString, with characters whose ASCII value is greater than 127 converted to their equivalent in the Mac OS character set. characters whose ASCII value is less than 128 are left unchanged.

Comments:

Revolution automatically translates text in fields and scripts, as well as the names of custom properties, into the appropriate character set when you move a stack from one platform to another. It is therefore not necessary to translate them. However, the contents of custom properties, since they may contain binary data, are not translated automatically and must be translated if they contain characters whose ASCII value is 128 or greater.

Characters whose ASCII value is less than 128 are the same in the Mac OS character set and ISO 8859-1, so they are not changed by the ISOToMac function. These characters include uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and most punctuation.
