txt to epub tilde/special characters

When I convert a txt file to epub, certain characters (ñ) for example, get converted to '?', so a word like piñon ends up pi?on.

Isthere a way to prevent this? (the ñ character appears correctly in the txt file)

I should add that I'm viewing the epub files on a nook.

Thanks!
