My partner is in the same boat. He is planning to write a program
in Chipmunk Basic that will convert an 8-bit document into UTF-8.
I imagine the same could be done in Perl, C, Pascal or whatever,
fairly simple task (at least in theory): suck in one byte from the
input file, look up the UTF-8 equivalent and send it to the
output file; repeat until end of input file.

What does one have to do to see Unicode docs on Netscape (Mac 4.08)?
Install WorldScript? Does WorldScript require QuickDraw GX?
