Using native2ascii [google.com] you can do the following:
1 - Open the original file in Notepad. Make any necessary changes, then Save As, Unicode.
2 - Using Ultra Edit or similar, convert the file to UTF-8 (Unicode to UTF8, Unicode Editing)
3 - Use the java tool native2ascii to convert the file using the following command (from Command Prompt):
4 - native2ascii -encoding UTF8 [source file] [destination file]
e.g.native2ascii -encoding UTF8 D:\work\yourfile.ext
"Unicode" is not an encoding for file data, it's just a numbering system for characters. UTF-8 is one of several possible ways to encode unicode data for storage in files. Other popular ones are UTF-16 and UTF-32, both of which exist in big-endian and little-endian versions.
As long as you just know "unicode", your guess is as good as mine about the actual contents of the file, and the best way to convert it.
