It's UTF-8 encoded Unicode. Everything should, at this point, be UTF-8
encoded Unicode, except for some modules that are in Codepage 1252 and a
couple of Czech modules that need to be fixed still.
I can't help you much beyond that. There are filters for converting UTF-8
to HTML, RTF, and possibly UTF-16 (untested) if you can use any of those
Any Unicode font with those codepoints ought to work. And if it fails, it
should show boxes or question marks rather than other characters.
