No, or actually, perhaps this depends on the user configuration
(e.g. keyboard configuration / input method). Here's from an old
mail I wrote:

  I don't use Terminal (except sometimes for testing) because I don't
  like its UI. It is possible to type characters with dead keys, but
  they are entered in the NFD form. That's another reason why I don't
  use Terminal, because many applications don't support the combining
  characters very well.

And it seems that other users had similar problems. I've seen a
report from someone seeing a difference between Apple's Terminal
and iTerm when typing his password, which had a non-ASCII character.
