As we know, the console drivers atkbd and sc do not support unicode
(in contrast to linux console drivers, for example).
So we have to use programs able to translate unicode to a single byte
code table. I use my PC successfully in such a manner.


You should set LC_CTYPE to ru_RU.UTF-8 (for russian) before running
X programs, and you should have correct unicode support.
I have the next line in .xinitrc:
env LC_CTYPE=ru_RU.UTF-8 twm
And I have no problem with X programs for years.
