	Anybody know if I can do a perl substitution of the scads of
	\x80\x9D to simple double-quotes (") from the command line?

	I've got many HTML files with this strange syntax (must be from
	Windows) that  I'd like to make human-readable for myself.  I
	know how to change s/OLD/NEW/ and make a *.bak of the old using
	perl from the cmd line.  But nothing this obscure.  ---Yes, I have
	scoured some web/perl docs; still fuzzy.  

	thanks in advance,
