If you run

  % xterm -lc iso-8859-1

you will get what you want, i.e. ISO-8859-1 terminal in UTF-8
environment and Alt+I will produce "é". Please read xterm man page for
more explanation on -lc and -en. See also luit(1).

If you really want to change the locale of Gnome/KDE/Xfce from default
UTF-8 to ISO-8859-1 (not recommended), then you should appropriately set
LANG and LC_ALL variables in ~/.xinitrc.
