    When I try to save an excel file as a csv file, I am losing all of my diacritics, I guess that it must be a character set problem, any ideas where I should look to correct this, so that the csv version of the file retains all of my diacritics?

    The solution was to save it using Open Office, which allows the choice of the character set when saving and choosing UTF-8.
