hi John,

what version of emacs is it?

what about saving it in something like 'undecided-unix'?  If it is just
an ascii file, that should be okay.

or, from a hint in gnu.emasc.bug from Eli Zaretskii:

        M-: (skip-chars-forward "\000-\177") RET 

and it should move forward to the first non-ascii char.
