Here is the list of edits for this post
Re: [nir] convert charset
Untested - but try:

convert_to_utf8
Code:
sub {

use Unicode::MapUTF8 qw(to_utf8 from_utf8 utf8_supported_charset);

my $val = $_[0];
if ($val =~ /[\200-\377]/) {
$val =~ s/([\200-\377]+)/from_utf8({ -string => $1, -charset => 'ISO-8859-1'})/eg;
}

return $val;

}

..call with:

<%convert_to_utf8($Description)%>

(you may have to play around with the ISO-8859-1 bit, to fit your needs - as this is from my DMOZ_Wizard plugin)
