    One method of doing this is to simply make the source file as HTML,
    open it in the Internet Explorer browser with the [View] - [Encoding]
    set to the appropriate encoding, and then [File] - [Save As]
    "Unicode (UTF-8)". That's pretty painless.

    In fact, [File] - [Save As] "User Defined" will even save the
    page using Unicode NCRs rather than UTF-8.

    It should work both ways, but, when saving from Unicode to any
    older code page, any material not covered by the older code
    page would be lost.
