polish characters, rtf -> epub conversion

Hello,
I have a RTF file with polish characters in it. It displays correctly on the computer. I want to convert it in EPUB format.

When i do this in calibre, and then view the result with the built in reader in calibre, the characters doesn't show correctly.

How to get that fixed ? I tried around with the settings but i don't know at all how to do and it seems like it's explained nowhere on the internet.

Thank you,

This section of the FAQs might help.

When I run into character encoding problems I keep trying various settings until one works for me.

You can try these:

cp1252
cp1251
latin1
utf-8

thanks, I finally managed it by first converting to .txt, opening it with firefox, doing «show character encoding" and using this encoding into calibre. but I guess there's a simpler way..

Way I found around it is to open rtf in Word, save as HTML, add HTML to calibre and convert to EPUB and characters are OK.

Apparently if rtf is encoded with specific charset and calibre is not detecting it properly it is not possible to change it directly

FYI, the original poster resolved his problem about 5 and a half months ago.
