      It's a common problem on the Net, especially in accented languages like
      Italian and French.
      If there isn't the character definition in a page you see a lot of garbage,
      using a Mac.
      I solve the problem with this clip:

      MAC -> Win
      ^!Continue Convert all characters from Mac to Windows?
      ^!REPLACE:"Š" >> "ä" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"ˆ" >> "à" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"" >> "è" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"Ž" >> "é" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"“" >> "ì" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"˜" >> "ò" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"š" >> "ö" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"" >> "ù" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"Ÿ" >> "ü" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"§" >> "ß" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"Ÿ" >> "Ä" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"…" >> "Ö" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"†" >> "Ü" TWSA

      and there is also the vice-versa:

      Win -> MAC
      ^!Continue Convert all characters from Windows to Mac?
      ^!REPLACE:"à" >> "ˆ" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"ä" >> "Š" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"è" >> "" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"é" >> "Ž" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"ì" >> "“" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"ò" >> "˜" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"ö" >> "š" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"ü" >> "Ÿ" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"ù" >> "" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"ß" >> "§" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"Ä" >> "Ÿ" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"Ö" >> "…" TWSA
      ^!REPLACE:"Ü" >> "†" TWSA

      Hope you can see correct characters... because I don't find ASCII codes :-(

      Bye!
