[Tutor] unprintable characters from MSWord

I have to parse text that seems to be cut and pasted from a word document into a web form.
It looks like this:

^II shouldM-^Rnt attempt any of the great solosM-^WWagnerM-^Rs Tristan.

(From the `cat -tev` output).
I am guessing it is from a word processor.
How can I find out what these characters are and convert them to ascii equivalents?

Thank you
