Does anyone have a script that will remove ansi characters.
I think that is what they are. In WORD, they look like upside
down question marks, or a "A" with two dots over it. When I view
it with a dos/text viewer, I get a picture or design. I know I
can make a script to remove it, doing one character at a time,
but the file I do this to doesn't usually have ALL the thing I
want removed. Then I have to do a script for the next file, and
to clean it up, I wind up running two or more scripts.

Perhaps if someone could even point me to a site that may help
me. I don't know all the ansi characters and there may be an
eaiser way to solve this.
Thanks
