On the Macintosh, when Apple's Mac Runtime for Java is installed it 
installs a system extension, "Text Encoding Converter." A tool has been 
written to easily access the functions of this extension from scripting 
environments to convert text from one encoding to another 
(http://www.bekkoame.ne.jp/~iimori/sw/TECOSAX.html). For example, within 
Frontier a script can convert text easily by calling the method 
TEC.convertText (originalText, oldEncoding, newEncoding).

Windows NT, in particular, deals well with multiple text encodings. Is 
there a similar extension/dll/API in the Windows world that can help 
scripters/programmers with this task?
