Probably an artifact of my system--DOSBox on a Mac--but I get what looks like a faithful paste of the encoded frame, do the decode, again, no apparent trouble; but ADD2U2 fails with this message: "Bad or incomplete frame DeFined - Abort." Sending this along just in case--a really long shot--there's an issue with the frame as emailed.

Incidentally, DOS Word 5.0 (not Y2K compliant, but which I still use) or 5.5 (Y2K compliant and freeware: http://download.microsoft.com/download/word97win/Wd55_be/97/WIN98/EN-US/Wd55_ben.exe) can call binary files, and one can do search and replace and save the file as text (unformatted). Of course, a hex editor is less tricky.
