Does anyone know if a program exists to convert from the home-grown
encoding used by WordPerfect 5.1's multinational fonts
(WP MultinationalA Roman and WP MultinationalB Roman) to standard
windows codepages (or to Unicode)?

I have these fonts on one machine here (indeed I have WP 5.1) but we
have a WP 5.1 file in Polish which I need to give to a customer who
has Word 6. The WP -> Word conversion works fine, with the special
characters being set to the WP MultinationalA font, but of course
without this font they are useless.
