I have tried a number of ways to read the characters, but all non-Latin-1 characters (presumably these are IPA) come out as question marks I've saved disk to and opened via a number of programs, and nothing useful is seen. I even tried open as MS word document or as a rich text document but nothing successful. This is an *.rtf document and I don't think utf-8 survives in it.

The enclosed RTF file contains a "conversion chart" giving
the phonetic values of sound symbols employed in
Merriam-Webster's WWWebster Dictionary. Any comments,
corrections etc. are welcome.
