Running SCRIPTS as bash do not give off special letters for Norwegian following the echo command.The letters will lack as holes.

echo will simply write back the arguments passed to it. If there's a problem with certain characters, that sounds more like a misconfiguration of the terminal than a bug with echo.

Could you give an example of what commands were used and the results seen? Piping the output of echo though "od" or "hexdump -C" would be useful.
