A Tab delimited text file – what more could we want to know?

4 different lines of tab delimited text each with 4 identical values:

2012/03/08      1,213.59        text    7-8
"2012-03-08"  "1,213.59"    "text"        "7-8"
8.März12        01213,59        text    7-8
03/08/2012      $1213.59        "text"        "7-8"
[...] to be continued with dozends of variants

Ahh -- I think the reason behind some of the confusion is becoming clearer... I
want to manipulate *dumb, uninterpreted* text.  So "03/08/2012" would not be the

meaningless characters, but different meaningless characters.
