    I've started to use TACT to create a database using multiple European
    languages; but the most comfortable way to create the input involves creating
    ANSI-character-coded files, and TACT is still in the world of IBMPC extended
    ASCII. Unfortunately I've lost my TACT manual in my numerous moves in recent
    years; I know that I can deal with this by manipulating the XLATTABL files,
    but have forgotten which is which and what the syntax is. If anyone has
    solved ANSI-input/ASCII-output and has appropriately modified tables I'd be
    grateful if s/he could send me them as an attachment -- or if there is a
    TACTxpert out there who could give me a quick couple of screenfuls I'd also
    be grateful.
