    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
    will find:

    Unicode (Big Endian)
    Unicode (UTF-7)
    Unicode (UTF-8)

    Select "Unicode (UTF-8)" and Click OK
