Description of problem:
Bad: Portuguese special chars do not appear in shell and in any 
textfile like an html page.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login to shell
2.Try to write this portuguese char "ã" or edit a file using VIM and 
try to write it.
3.Copying a file from a RH9 system containing this specials chars 
converts it to other chars.

Additional info:
I use this chars in webpages and instead of the char i want it 
appears something odd in the browser.

Do you have a proper header describing the charset in your web page?

Comment 2 david 2005-01-07 17:56:39 UTC
Yes, but that's only one problem, when i edit a text file with Vim (i 
didn't tried other) i cannot write the ã, and if it already has one 
(when copied from other S.O. like RH9) it converts it to 2 diferent 
odd chars.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-01-21 23:07:35 UTC
What is your LANG set to?

What charset is the web page file in?
