I tried setting the LANG variable to both da_DA, da_DA.utf-8,
da_DA.iso-8859-1 plus en_US... (the same LANG variables as mentioned
before, just with a different language), but that did not help :-/

Did not help either. I tried writing "æøå" in my ~/.bashrc, which I've
set to UTF-8 with C-x RET f RET utf-8 RET and tested with all the
aforementioned locales, but same result, æøå gets turned into something
like ¥...

I tried searching groups.google.com, but no help to find there :-(

Thanks for the help.
