------- Additional Comments From michal harddata com  2008-04-03 23:45 EST -------
The current version of antiword supplies /usr/share/antiword/UTF-8.txt
mapping file and, AFAICS, this is good enough for a text output.
The moment one tries to use -p or -a a result is:

The combination PostScript and UTF-8 is not supported

followed by a usage message.

My current "wrapper" script which prevents the above from
happening looks like follows:

#!/bin/sh

# a shell wrapper to make 'antiword' usage reasonable on UTF-8 systems.
#
# Michal Jaegermann, michal harddata com, 2004/Nov/03
#    - simplify and we may be printing on a Postcript printer
#    - so do not use -i0, 2006/May/08

echo "$@" | egrep -q -- '-p|-a' && lang="env LANG=${LANG%.UTF-8}"
$lang antiword.bin "$@"
exit

and that works.
