[postgis-users] Cleaning up a text import

I imported some text using the Quantum GIS dxf2postgiswhich somehow 
became distorted through the import.

What should have been imported was TK-208.

What I got was %%UTK-208%%U.

Perhaps I did something wrong while using dxf2postgis?

Otherwise, I can trim the text using - select trim (both '% U' from 
'%%UTK-208%%U') .

However I would need to know what it is that needs to be trimmed from 
future imports, which isn't always possible.

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to resolve this.

Many thanks in advance.
