Consequently, gnokii thinks the character set is ISO-8859-1, not
ISO-8859-15. How can I force this?

You may try to use unicode. I'll look closer at this soon.

Much appreciated. Using 'e' as a replacement for Euro in text messages is an ugly hack I'd like to get rid of. :)

I tried unicode first, since the ChangeLog said that it's supported. This broke everything else, like 'ä', 'ö', and other high-bit Latin1 chars. The locale was set to en_GB.UTF-8, and I could type all the characters on the keyboard on Mac OS X, using the supplied Terminal program configured for UTF-8. This was very nice, but didn't co-operate with gnokii at all.

What flavour of Unicode exactly is supported? I realize that UTF-8 is but a subset of Unicode. Does gnokii understand the real Unicode Euro symbol at character position 8364 (hex 20AC)? Tried it out with:

perl -e 'print "\x20\xac"' | gnokii --sendsms ...

But this showed up as '???' on my Nokia 3330, which is capable of displaying the Euro symbol.
