If you hit Commad-i in a terminal window or select "Show Info" form the
terminal's File menu on Panther (OS X 10.3) then select "Display" in
the combo box there is some interesting information.

What I found interesting is that my Character Set Encoding is set to
"Unicode UTF-8". Though I could not cut and paste the asian characters
from you email sig to the terminal and have it do anything useful.
There are lots of options for font selection as well though, and I
didn't bother playing around with them. I was using Monaco Regular
10pt. and had the checkbox "Wide glyphs for Japanese/Chinese/etc."
checked.
