	Thanks for all the ways, gents.  (I never thought of tr,
	but now that seems like an option.)  A week+ ago I tried
	perl using 's/\xNN/"/g' from the cmdline, but nojoy. 
	The online docs said that \N{xx} would catch a hex character;
	that's what was fuzzy.

	{Very} early this morning I retried using \x80 and 
	\x9d, \x9c separately.  diff showed that things worked...
	mostly; then I found more hex characters that I had to
	carefully subs out.  I'll write a script to do the whole 

	No wonder I love Unix!
