[Chicago-talk] Reading extended ASCII characters from a text box

On our website we have a HTML text box so that customers can insert a 
product description. Problem is when they do a copy and paste from a 
Word or other document format that has extended ASCII charcters (like 
inch marks, foot marks, greek characters and even latin-1 
characters), the characters get translated to nulls and such.
Is there a way to read the contents in the raw form using Perl so I 
can translate it? Or is the an HTML issue?
