    Look at the thread about free Text editors, some of those may offer a Hex Edit view.
    Check out the Forum Search. It's the short path to getting great results from this forum.

    Yeah. Some text viewers can display all characters if you want the to, but the best solution would be a hex editor. There are many of them, some better than others.
