I tried the JEEP website coordinate conversion that David McDonald
suggested and I like it. It has a nice simple layout and easy to use,
though I did not know about the UTM bug.
I use the REDFEARN spreadsheet every day as my main workhorse for
conversions.  I often have to convert many UTM coordinates into lat/long
and I have written a macro in the spreadsheet that automatically converts
these UTM coordinates into lat/long which saves me having to process one at
a time.
