Description fla 2001-05-08 15:51:39 UTC
Description of Problem:
mpage does not output accented characters irrespective of the encoding 
specified with -C, but replaces them with asian symbols. This makes 
printing of text files with accented characters impossible, too.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo Laszls > x
2. mpage -1 -CISO-8859.1 > x.ps
3. gv x.ps

Actual Results:
L#zl in the postscript file (# stands for an asian character)

Expected Results:
Laszls in the postscript file
