I have been there and downloaded a few html pages. Also at utf8.org I think, 
Tom Lutz told me.
Well.. it is not so easy after all :-) it will take some time to understand.

I don't know which charset is used. I think codepage 437 or perhaps 850 but I 
think that is DOS talk. For example in the Elberfelder the word "Konig" 
(King)  the 'o' is ascii 0x94
I have a few files about converting iso 8859 to unicode, but there the small 
o with diaresis is 0xF6
Perhaps I should build my own translation program :-)

I have found it. Thanks for the help!
