I wrote something that converts these characters, which you'll most
often find when copying text from MS Office:
The second argument to the function just tells it to remove all the
hidden meta tags that MS Office chucks into text that you copy into a
rich text box in a web page, as this can really mess up how the content
is displayed in a web browser.
