It may be helpful to ask Nomenumbra to list at least one of the affected 
fields.  Coming from a few separate sources, it may have an impact.

BTW, in very quick testing on the vendor's demo site, the "Name" field 
in the New Vendor function and the "Comments" field under the Edit 
Vendor function are affected.  These are the only two I tried, so 
clearly there is a problem.

Vendor URL is http://www.bctree.com/~assetman/index.htm
