Hi Teresa,

I'm not sure I follow you. I'm not using Putty since I don't have 
Windows. From what you are saying, though, I infer the problem you had 
had to do with how you viewed the characters on the terminal, right? 
This is not the problem I have, though, because I transfer the text file 
to my local computer and I can see that the text encoding is screwed up. 
Thanks for your help, anyway. Gràcies!
