I'm trying to import a rather large HTML document into Accordance as a user tool, but my document gets filled with all sorts of weird characters--everything from those square boxes to daggers. I'm not using strange fonts or different character encodings. Any ideas?

How large is large, and what encoding is your HTML? Windows Latin 1 or UTF-8?

The file is about 5MB and the encoding is the "default" Mac Roman or whatever it is called. It was UTF-8, but changing to this encoding removed the "daggers." A short ways down in the document, Accordace displays all of these weird white rectangles and then the rest of the document gets messed up.
