There's no reason you shouldn't be able to write out the strings you
have shown, but it's possible that by pasting the strings into email,
you have stripped out some problematic characters.

works, so the string as shown is fine.  Do you need the special
characters in the names--they are not readable as is, anyway, right? 
Unless you specify a Bosnian font for only the Bosnian names, which is
not possible for most applications. If you don't need them, see
-findit charlist- for a way to identify them and then zap them with
(for example) the subinstr() function.
