Character Problems In Terminal


I am having problems displaying certain characters in under OS X 10.3

I have files with names in other languages, so need to make use of characters like Ñ and ñ (that's LATIN CAPITAL LETTER N WITH TILDE and LATIN SMALL LETTER N WITH TILDE, respectively). They get properly encoded, because I can view the files on a Linux machine with no problem. But the terminal will not display these characters properly. Sometimes I get the code \303\221, other times A̱ (depending on where the coding is coming from.)

It is the same no matter what coding I have the terminal set to (UTF-8, Latin-1, etc). The character palate says the characters are in the font (I've tried several).
