Re: Unicode2ANSI converter for Win98

Crude but simple and works for plain text files and HTML:

- Drag your original file onto an Internet Explorer 5 window
- Tweak View.Encoding until you can read the document
- Choose File.SaveAs and the target encoding you desire

Note that Internet Explorer will place named entities or numeric character
references like 〹 into the target document for characters without a
code point in the target encoding. Which is legal in HTML but not
necessarily legal for your text file.

Subject: Unicode2ANSI converter for Win98


I'm badly looking for a converter from unicode to ANSI/ASCII for Windows
98/ Windows NT.

I Know that there is a tool called UCONVERT from MicroSoft, but I can't
find any download for that.

Anybody who could help me please answer!
