I checked it with Hebrew (MULE, iso-8859-8) and this is what I found:
  1. The mode line display the Hebrew OK.
  2. The frame title has the Hebrew characters in it, but it is not
     displayed (presumably because it has the MULE values instead of
     the unibyte values).
     If I change the title to unibyte string with:
         (modify-frame-parameters (selected-frame) (list (cons
                'title (multibyte-string-to-unibyte "ינרק דוהא on Beta"))))
     I can see the Hebrew characters but in Latin-1 (?) glyphs.
     I conclude that the font of the frame title (and frame icon) is not
     a font from the fontset I'm using for the frame. I don't know how
     to set this font.


I defined a function `multibyte-string-to-unibyte', it converts each
character in the input string by using `multibyte-char-to-unibyte'.
I think it should be a built-in (C) function.
