Is there a way to (1) search for the UTF-8 encoded characters in a

Yes. In GNU Emacs 23 I've seen in the *Warnings* buffer hyper-links to the characters not fitting into the specified encoding.

You could also search for the usual prefixes of UTF-{7,8,16} encoded characters.

and (2) map them to a sensible ASCII character?

How can you map 100,000 or 200,000 characters to a very limited set of 100? This mapping would be candidate for the most successful compression algorithm...

Besides, it's not sane to save a file in an encoding a when the file's header tells its contents is in encoding b.



If you don't find it in the index, look very carefully through the entire catalogue.
