Hi Everyone,

Accented characters are shown as Junk characters on Solaris 2.8.

These characters were displayed properly on Solaris 2.6.
Please let me know if any setting has to be done.

Thanks,
Vinay

I'd also have a look at your locale settings before you kick off the browser (at the prompt, run "locale").  Verify that you're using a locale settings that can actually display accented chars.

One other thing you could try, is to set LC_ALL and to the Unicode (or UTF8) locale (assuming they're installed on the machine).  Either of these 2 char sets should be able to display almost every character out there.
