    Reading a special character in VB

    Robert P. Kyle

      I'm trying to translate an AppleScript into VB and have gotten stuck at the point where the script looks to see if the first character of paragraph is a bullet. In AppleScript, "character 1 a string" returns unicode "<25CF>" when the bullet exists, which works just fine. In VB, I'm looking at  ...Characters.Item(1).TextContents but getting a long string of integers which is not unicode and not ascii and not anything I can figure out how to work with. Can someone help?
