Domenica,

Modern Unix platforms have the iconv(1) converter that usually supports
Unicode. If you are on Unix, try man iconv. There are the Basis tools as
mentioned, and the IBM classes for Unicode are freely available on IBM's
AlphaWorks site (they include converters) at
http://www.alphaworks.ibm.com./tech/icu. A good resource for Unicode related
questions is Roman Czyborra's Web site at http://www.czyborra.com/. The
Unicode mailing list is a good place to ask such questions too...

Yves.
