If you have a Word document with Unicode characters
choose: File Save As, Save as type: Plain Text
enter a file name, and click on "Save"
This should bring up a "File Conversion" dialog
which says: "Warning: Saving as a text file will cause all formatting,
pictures and objects in your file to be lost"
Under this it should say:
"Text Encoding:" followed by three radio buttons
o Windows (default) o MS-DOS o Other encoding
Select: Other Encoding
This should activate a list box at the right containing names of
numerous code pages and character encodings. Scroll right down and you
Unicode (Big Endian)
Select "Unicode (UTF-8)" and Click OK
