MySQL accepts ascii text. I use a program called phpMyAdmin written by Tobias
Ratschiller. It is a nice php frontend to MySQL. You can select how the ascii
is formatted when you dump it into the db. ie; end of line or special
It has been very handy for several projects here so far... The best has been a
real quick conversion from Microsoft products into a MySQL db. <grin>

You can find phpMyAdmin at http://www.phpwizard.com
