 From the docs:
Antiword uses the environment variables ''LC_ALL'', ''LC_CTYPE'' and  
''LANG'' (in that order) to get the current locale and uses this  
information to select the default mapping file.

My value for LANG is en_US.UTF-8, so Antiword must parse that to extract  
the UTF-8 bit to choose UTF-8.txt as its mapping file.

So probably easier to let the user set it?

I'm not using this yet, but will be shortly. I have silly local councils  
sending replies to emails, that I want to read by machine, as Word RTF  
format attachments... :(
