Thanks everyone, I got it working earlier this morning using deelan's
suggestion. I modified the code in his link so that it removes rather
than replaces the characters.

Also, this was my first experience with unicode and what confused me is
that I was thinking of a unicode object as an encoding, but it's not.
It's just a series of bytes and you later tell it to use a specific
encoding like utf-8 or latin-1. Thanks again for all the help.
