Today I ran into a situation where an old program I wrote is useful once again, but this time in a different context than the original need. At first I needed this utility method to convert extended characters to their ISO Latin equivalents for the HTML world, but today I need it to convert things in the XML world. I can't say I ever anticipated this need, because XML was but a dream back then, but it's good to know that it's still useful.
