TYPE /X and Unicode files?

May 20, 2008
Syracuse, NY, USA
Should TYPE /X work with Unidode files? Without /X it wprks, but with /X it seems to skip every second character:

v:\> type d:\tcmd10\TCMD.INI | head /n3

v:\> type /x d:\tcmd10\TCMD.INI | head /n3
0000 0000 5b 00 4e 00 5d 00 0a 00 61 00 73 00 4f 00 45 00 [ N ] . a s O E
0000 0010 72 00 72 00 4e 00 0d 00 44 00 72 00 69 00 4f 00 r r N . D r i O
0000 0020 65 00 3d 00 67 00 6e 00 0a 00 61 00 6c 00 65 00 e = g n . a l e
