I don't understand. If eIn=YES, then it does use iEnc. I didn't change
anything about how the code read the input. If the input is in Unicode,
then the code correctly determines that, otherwise it assumes it is in
the default encoding (even though it may just be escaped unicode). In
that case you need to specify EscapeIn or EscapeOut to tell it which is

Do you have a test file that will show me what is wrong?
