Check if Konsole/KDE have any settings regarding fonts and character sets. I'm
not a KDE user so I can't help you much with that. According to
http://docs.kde.org/stable/en/kdebase-apps/konsole/commandreference.html, the
View->Set Character Encoding might be of use, or one of the submenus
in the Settings menu?
