UniEdit (by OIT Humanities Computing Facility, Duke University) can import
text in many encodings, including ISO-8859-6; it can store text in several
UCS formats, including UTF-8. It also can edit bi-di text (user-interface
akin to Notepad).

It also comes with a wide range of command-line driven conversions, so you
can organize mass conversions via DOS Bat-files. These convert from about
100 different 8-bit codes, various multy-byte codes, and the UTFs to UCS-2
and vice versa; you can also define your own mappings.

For more info, cf. <>.
