Yup.
1. Open it in Notepad, click Save As and choose "ANSI" from encoding list (left of the Save button).
2. Enjoy your new ascii file.

HTH,

Naturally, you'll lose some data because the character set is smaller. Expect to see some of those rectangular boxes.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
