BBEdit and TextWrangler let you reopen a document in different  
encoding; so, for example, if you open a document which has the Euro  
character changed for a question mark, go to menu File -> Reopen  
Using Encoding and change to another encoding until you see your  
document has all characters right, then select Save As..., and in  
Options... select the encoding and line breaks (Macintosh, Unix or  
DOS) you prefer.
