Hi !

I need help to solve the problem of the special characters used by european western languages, for example  French.
Word is my word-processing tool.I can save the files in txt format but special characters like é are transformed in \xe9 when I read the files in Python. How do I proceed to get the original files in latin-1 ?
Thanks for your help.
