Characters' encoding problems are well-known and of course there is a simple solution on linux to change a file's encoding.
+
 
+
This solution is named: '''iconv''' which is provided by the ''glibc'' package which is in core.
+
 
+
The following command will convert the ''foo'' file from ISO-8859-15 to UTF-8 saving it to ''foo.utf'':
+
 
+
$ iconv -f ISO-8859-15 -t UTF-8 foo > foo.utf
+
 
+
The manual page of this program is pretty clear so refer to it for more advanced usage.
