I put these two UCS2 files on our preview site for Joe Becker's
convenience, and did not expect their names to 'leak' onto the
'unicode' list without being accompanied by my explanation that
they had been simply converted to the different encodings, with
no editing of the META charset tag, so that Joe could try loading
them into Word97.

They were never intended to be valid HTML files, and I have now
removed them.
