I'm not saying that this is the issue here, but when you are dealing with different 
character sets (or alphabets or encodings etc.) you have to be very careful about what I 
call the "Babel effect".  You may have a result which is really in one character 
set/encoding, but the intermediate layer of display to your console (or the editor program

you are using) may be translating it to something else, just to confuse you.
