-The Java compiler and other Java tools can only process files which contain Latin\-1 and/or Unicode\-encoded (\\udddd notation) characters. \f2native2ascii\fP converts files which contain other character encodings into files containing Latin\-1 and/or Unicode\-encoded charaters.
+\f2native2ascii\fP converts files that are encoded to any character encoding that is supported by the Java runtime environment to files encoded in ASCII, using Unicode escapes ("\\uxxxx" notation) for all characters that are not part of the ASCII character set. This process is required for properties files containing characters not in ISO\-8859\-1 character sets. The tool can also perform the reverse conversion.
