I'm not sure how to test that specifically, but it seems that accented
characters simply fall back to their undecorated equivalents if the
encoding is not appropriate, eg:

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ ./setlc French_France.1252
Locale: French_France.1252
The date is: sam. 01 of août  2007
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ ./setlc French_France.28597
Locale: French_France.28597
The date is: sam. 01 of aout  2007

(the encodings used there are WIN1252 and ISO8859-7 (Greek)).

I'm happy to test further is you can suggest how I can figure out the
encoding actually output.

Regards, Dave.
