Readlines returns non ASCII character

Hi all,

I am not a expert programmer but I have to extract information from a large
file.
 I used  codecs.open(..) with UTF16 encoding to read this file. It could
read all the lines in the file but returns with the non Ascii characters.
Below are 5 sample lines. How do I avoid having this non Ascii items. Is
there a better way to read this?



Thanks
Sankar
