Hello all! This might be a stupid problem, but
I can't find help elsewhere...

I am quite new to BSD, but have been using Linux for over
five years now. Amazingly, I have trouble setting
the rxvt, xterm or any other X terminal emulator
to display umlauts (a, o with dots). My keyboard
works just fine on console, but not under X terminals.
X applications, like Netscape and Xemacs also work
fine. I have been looking into settings and source
of NetBSD kernel, XFree86, rxvt, xterm, stty, environment
variables, and different shells, but I can't find
a solution. I have read all possible manuals, faqs
and howtos, but no help. Now if there is a kind
person from Scandinavia or perhaps Germany, or from
somewhere else using umlauts in X terminals, can
you lead me to the right path? Thanks.


P.S. "=E4=F6=E5=C4=D6=C5" <- my umlauts, can you see anything?
