Default Odd square characters

Does anyone know how to get rid of those odd looking rectangular-squarish characters in text strings?

On active layer I have paragraph text that I wish to process using vb string functions. But, when I do something like:

Dim sTemp As String
sTemp = s.Text.Story.Characters.All


sTemp is fill with a string of printing and non-printing characters represented by "[]" rectangles.

I assume they're printing instructions (new line, new paragraph, spacing) and I need to convert string to ASCII, but I don't know how to get that done.

Thanks

p.s. What an awesome forum!
