    Convert source files to UTF8

    Hi everybody!

    I am experiencing some problems with text files, such as LaTeX source files. Since I migrated from Windows to Ubuntu, all the files have an encoding that does not correctly work with Kile. It compiles the source files to PDF nevertheless, but gibes me a lot of errors about different characters and it does not really look good to have question marks all over your document! Plus, in the output file, a lot of characters are missing, for instance in this word: "Mrzrevolution (1848)" which should acutally also contain an "Ä".

    Long story, short question:
    How can I convert files with the Windows encoding to UTF-8?

    Thanks
    Ingo

    I have learned to use the word "impossible" with the greatest caution
