As already mentioned, the problem is probably one of encoding. Any
automated solution includes the possibility of corruption. That said,
there are a number of solutions you might try:

If you have the Java JDK installed, you might have the program
native2ascii installed.

Alternatively, on my Linux box I have the recode and iconv commands.

Finally, if the problem is merely a character in the high ascii range,
the following perl command with strip out anything greater than ascii

perl -e 's/[\x80-\xFF]//g' -p Work/Xiphias/xsl/escape.xml
