I was trying to read LIESMICH.TXT in that package, and (aside from my 
weak knowledge of the German language) the file is written using the 
DOS "OEM" ASCII extensions, not the ANSI extensions, so the umlaut 
characters come out wrong in the notepad that comes with Windows XP.

I remember recently using a Windows viewer that had a menu option to 
choose which ASCII extension set to use while viewing the file (not 
just when opening it). But I don't remember what is was. Can anybody 
identify such a viewer or editor?

I can see the file with the correct umlaut characters in my favorite 
DOS tool, LIST (from Vern Buerg), but that isn't a Windows tool. MS 
Word 6 for DOS will let me choose "DOS text" when it opens the file, 
but if I guess wrong, I have to close the file and open it again. So 
these are not what I'm looking for. What's the application or 
accessory I'm looking for? Thanks....
