The html document various characters like
© \xa9 (Copyright symbol)
(and others).

I tried using but it didn't like these characters.

Any ideas on how I can use iconv or another tool to convert documents like
this so I can then convert to Markdown?

I don't want to do manually as I have around 500+ documents.
