Angry loading external text into dynamic text feild problems

I have around 25 frames all loading external text from *.txt files, now some are working and others are cutting text files in half, and not including all the text, some of them are bold when there is no bold tags included in the text file, this is a huge problem that I need to get under control, I have been struggling with this trying to understand the logic of the problem and there seems to be none!
If anyone can offer anything please post your ideas.

Cheers

Lawrence

no idea about the bold sorry - post the text file when you can

here's a list of special characters and the codes you need to replace them with

%21 = !
%22 = "
%23 = #
%24 = $
%25 = %
%26 = &
%27 = '
%28 = (
%29 = )
%2A = *
%2B = +
%2C = ,
%2D = -
%2E = .
%2F = /
%3A = :
%3B = ;
%3C = <
%3D = =
%3E = >
%3F = ?
%5B = [
%5C = \
%5D = ]
%5E = ^
%5F = _
%7B = {
%7C = |
%7D = }
%7E = ~

cheers
