Hi Max,

I've put the locale info below.  I wanted to let you know that I tried 
some things again today, starting from scratch, and found that if I just 
ran the odfWeave command, my files were readable, but after I ran the 
lines from the formatting.R file they gave the error.

I eventually tracked the problem down to the line ;
causes the outputs to give the error.  If I comment it out everything 
works fine.  I assume that this is a problem with the fonts available on 
my system ?  That if the symbol referenced by \342\234\224 isn't 
available then the file ends badly ?

Let me know if you have any other ideas, but otherwise, thanks hugely 
for the odfWeave package, it's probably saved R from not being used at 
all at my work (top ten Pharma).

Here's the locale info, Regards, Paul.
