What is your locale? (echo $LANG)
Comment 2 Ecmel Ercan 2001-09-10 17:08:54 EDT

I prefer to use Gnome in English but want to be able to write and read Turkish
ISO-8859-9 chars.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2001-09-14 17:36:48 EDT
If youu want to use fonts in an encoding other than your current locale's
encoding, you have to go into gnome-terminal preferences and uncheck
the "multibyte support" option. This will break all non-8-bit encodings, because
using fonts from another locale is just an accidental feature of the fact that
all the encodings you care about are 8-bit.

If that doesn't fix it, please reopen the bug.
