When I launch GNU Emacs in an ISO Latin environment (env LC_CTYPE=de_DE.ISO8859-15 LANG=de_DE.ISO8859-15 /usr/local/bin/ emacs-23.1.50 -Q &) and display in dired a directory with entries from some month of March the "Mär" abbrevation for the German month name "März" is displayed as M\344r. C-u C-x = on this \344 reveals:

                character: \344 (4194276, #o17777744, #x3fffe4)
        preferred charset: eight-bit (Raw bytes 128-255)
               code point: 0xE4
                   syntax: w    which means: word
              buffer code: #xE4
                file code: not encodable by coding system iso-latin-9-unix
                  display: no font available

The dired buffer has a 0 as encoding indicator. In ISO Latin 1 or 15 encodings LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH DIAERESIS is \344 = 228 = 0xE4 = U +00E4 a valid character and not some raw "eight-bit" entity. Could be this prevents proper display:

In *shell* buffer both Apple's ls and GNU's gls display:

Here the ä is described as:

                character: ä (228, #o344, #xe4)
        preferred charset: iso-8859-15 (ISO/IEC 8859/15)
               code point: 0xE4
                   syntax: w    which means: word
                 category: .:Base, j:Japanese, l:Latin
              buffer code: #xC3 #xA4
                file code: #xE4 (encoded by coding system iso-latin-9-unix)
                  display: by this font (glyph code)
x:-b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-10-100-75-75-m-60- iso10646-1 (#xE4)

The buffer's encoding is "0" as well, i.e., ISO Latin 1 or 15.

BTW, the issue is correct in UTF-8 environment.abbreviation
