So set your locale to UTF-8.
The state of non-ASCII interoperability just sucks at the moment.
However at least with UTF-8 you know your characters can at least be
interpreted to mean what you want them to mean, if the other side is
UTF-8 capable, whereas interoperability for the ISO-8859-X charsets
just will suck, always, forever more...
