Thank you for your help, and I apologise for crossposting previously.
I've previously figured out how to solve this issue when using read.table(),
but in this case I was using save() and load() on the dataframe,
inbedding it in a workspave- is there a way to tell  load() that the
workspace to be loaded was created with a specific encoding?
