Thank you for your explanations, dxc and Ryan, that's very illuminating.

I use Putty on Windows. I can indeed set it to UTF-8, then the '' becomes a Sigma, because I'm using a OEM/DOS font with Putty (to get proper box drawing characters for working with mc). If I change Putty to use a "Western" font, then the umlaut displays perfectly, but I lose the box drawing characters.

So I'll go back to the nice bit-mapped Terminal font, but I know now how it all works out.

Thanks again!
