replace_UTF8 is a very simple program used to convert non-ASCII characters to ASCII where we have an ASCII equivalent. If there is no equivalent is available, the non-ASCII character will be converted to a question mark '?'. Most mappings are one to one, others like Greek alphabet characters are spelled out.

Important Note

The text replacing the UTF-8 characters is often longer than the original characters, usually consisting of multiple characters.
