Hello,

It is annoying that Eterm doesn't handle utf8. Here is a half-baked patch that 
might inspire somebody (Michael? :) ) to do it properly.

Beware! This patch breaks things in non-utf8 locales, probably doesn't work on 
big-endian platforms, and is not suited for anything except playing around.

That said, things seem to work fairly well with e.g. LANG=en_US.UTF-8 and selecting a 
"good" font, e.g.
Eterm -F -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso10646-1

With -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-ja-13-120-75-75-c-120-iso10646-1 it even looks 
like Japanese and Korean is rendered correctly but there is some weirdness with 
column stepping (every second column is skipped).
