"NormalizeText" always returns unicode for all four of its variations, so no go. And as Paul
pointed out, if the language is Chinese, deleting all non-ascii characters would leave nothing.
On the other hand, we are only converting to Roman languages right now, so this might be a good
option for a while.

No, the stacks are uploaded to AWS and remain there, retrieved from the server on request.
There are currently hundreds of them with more added frequently. That's why I'm looking for a
solution that doesn't involve changing all the file names, because renaming and re-uploading
all those files would be way too much work.
I hadn't thought about HEX or base64. Those might be options. It would involve more work on my
client's end though, as she'd need to run each file through a name conversion before uploading.
Still thinking about this.
