>From a text console I launch Emacs like this:

LC_CTYPE=de_DE.utf8 exec filterm - dynafont emacs -nw --eval
"(set-keyboard-coding-system 'latin-9)"

(LC_CTYPE doesn't even seem to be needed...)

filterm is part of the "konwert" and "konwert-filters" packages, and
"dynafont" is one of its filters allowing me to read and reply to utf-8
texts (for instance when using the newsreader Gnus).

I described some problems with filterm recently, but was able to solve
them (now control-g works again!). filterm and dynafont switch your
console to utf-8 mode and also take care to chose a utf-8 capable screen
font etc.

This is just something that crossed my mind - I don't know if this fits
to your situation.

Let's see:
