Re: extended ASCII characters do not show up

I accidentally sent the last mail before I could finish it. There is more that 
I found.

The problem posted at the following URL is similar to mine.

As you will see at the end of the page, this person has also mentioned that 
this is a bug with
RedHat. I am including the URL below. I am not sure if the bug reported there 
is the same problem
as mine(they are speaking of composed keys).

I also have a few questions:

1. If the problem is that that regular curses library libncurses, cannot handle 
UTF-8 encoding
then how come in Slackware/Mandrake I get the extended ASCII characters without 
compiling with
libncursesw? I mean, I am compiling with the regular library and yet get the 
line drawing

2. What is the role of the locale environment variable in this?

Thank you for your help.
