I'm having problems with special characters like äöü in dired mode and in attachment paths:
1) When I'm trying to access a directory with M-x dired, the displayed path contains strange characters like e.g. "\374" for "ü" or "\366" for "ö".
Same is true for directory and file listings displayed by dired.
Is there a setting which can make dired display the characters with the correct encoding?
2) my other problem seems to be related:
I currently added a long server path as attachment directory in org-mode, like
(I usually copy the UNC path in Windows 7 Explorer with the PathCopy context menu)
The path is shown like that in :ATTACH_DIR: in the properties with the "ö" correctly displayed.
When I type C-c C-a C-f to open the directory in Windows Explorer, it creates a new directory at the same path called ZubehÃ¶r which is opened instead of the right one.
How can I solve those 2 problems?
