In a Binary Comparison document, you can find either a basic text string or binary data using escaped sequences. For example, you can enter ' code' or ' \x63\x6F\x64\x65'. There is no specific text entry mode for Unicode 16 bits or 32 bits, you have to enter it using escapes (e.g. T\0\0\0 for a 'T' in UTF32 Little Endian). When using the anti-slash notation, remember to check the Regular expression checkbox as this is indeed part of the regular expression syntax.
