Sorry! I didn't express myself correctly.
My primary language is spanish. I need the letters
aeiou with accent and the letter n with a tilde.
My LC_ALL is set to es_ES.ISO8859-1

Now, I can't do the conversion to UTF-8 in right way.

% echo ñ (n with tilde) | iconv -f iso-8859-1 -t utf-8
 ñ (A with a tilde and the sign + over a -)

It fails doing the conversion.
I discovered this problem using centericq. I can write
those letters ok, but when I send them, they arrive
wrong way.
I hope this can be useful.
