in reply to Convert international characters to plain ASCII

Believe it or not ... this approach works:

use utf8; $string =~ tr/εδ/aa/s;
You can fill in the rest of the "decorated" latin characters as needed as well play with capitalization (lower casing etc.) to achieve your desired results.

L-LL-L--L-LL-L--L-LL-L--
-R--R-RR-R--R-RR-R--R-RR
B--B--B--B--B--B--B--B--
H---H---H---H---H---H---
