Well, there a are a lot of standards.
The most widely accepted standard for 8 bit Latin based character sets is probably ISO-8859
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8859
but even there there are a lot of variants for different countries.

How is your screen configured?    It may be set to use ISO Latin-1 or UTF-8 Unicode, neither of which   correspons to the character set used in your table

oh

i see

well in that case, im not sure.  to be honest im still learning linux.... but, from where i think your suggestion is going, i thought that i should throw this in: whatever i do, it has to be standard.. which means that the users wouldn't be able to change their systems.

any ideas?
