Hi. Is there a way I can find out whether the terminal supports printing
non-ASCII characters properly? I want to print alternate ASCII characters if
the terminal doesn't have unicode support.

no - "you" (the application) have to believe what the user sets for
the locale.  Generally your application should import the locale
settings by calling
        setlocale(LC_ALL, "");
