I tried, in tcsh: % setenv |grep FR XTERM_LOCALE=fr_FR.ISO8859-1 LC_CTYPE=fr_FR.ISO8859-1
but the accented French characters are corrupted, e.g. in /usr/ports/french/aster/pkg-descr. I built xterm with % make -C /usr/ports/x11/xterm showconfig ===> The following configuration options are available for xterm-296: 256COLOR=on: Enable 256-color support DABBREV=off: Enable support for dabbrev-expand DECTERM=off: Enable DECterm Locator support GNOME=off: GNOME desktop environment support LUIT=on: Use LUIT for locale convertion from/to UTF-8 PCRE=on: Use Perl Compatible Regular Expressions SIXEL=on: Enable Sixel graphics support WCHAR=on: Enable wide-character support ===> Use 'make config' to modify these settings I usually can read russian with either ru_RU.KOI8-R or en_US.UTF-8 in xterm, so I think the xterm is set up correctly to view 8-bit characters.
