[Israel.pm] Reading tab deleimiterd Hebrew file

I have an Microsof Excel file with hebrew text in it.
It was saved on Windows as tab delimitered file and I am trying to
read that on Unix
with Spreadsheet::ParseExcel.

The problem is that it seems MS Excel is saving the file in cp1252 and
it replaces
some of the characters in the 128-256 range to be Hebrew characters.

We could I guess write a function that replaces thos characters with
the appropriate
UTF8 characters but I guess someone has either solved this or has a
better idea what
to do.
