Hi, my comments are below; sorry to say we cannot just download viewers here 
for any platform, whatsoever (our operating system is fairly new here; on 
another computer I've used unicode viewing is not even an option)

I've got one ready if you need it.  I can save you the trouble.  (I'll send 
it off-list if you like, you can save it, add it to the others if you have 
room in your email.)

I'm sorry, I wanted to make it match the others which will ultimately 
include both escape sequences and transliterations.

Oh well.  But think about it.

I'm sorry, it's not an option.  Period.  Unless you have your own computer 
for surfing the internet; we cannot buy/download these things.
