Converting Html to Word doc has encoding issue

The attached zip file contains an html file that was loaded into aspose word document. Step 2 was to save as word document using save format Doc. The resulting Document (also contained in the zip) displays special characters (like the euro sign and others) in various places in the document. If I encode the html data as ascii instead of utf-8, the euro and other characters all turn into question marks. Yet none of the characters are there directly in the html and the html displays fine–even when opened directly in word. I’m sure there is an encoding problem here somewhere, but I’ve not been able to figure it out.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you for your inquiry.
