When you say Unicode, I assume you mean UTF-8? If you are using a program
like FrontPage, converting to Unicode is as simple as changing

<META content="text/html; charset=windows-1256" http-equiv=Content-Type>


<META content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" http-equiv=Content-Type>

If you mean UTF-16, I recommend that you not go this way, as most editors
seem to have serious problems with UCS-2/UTF-16.
