I think readline and Octave handle 8 bit characters ok.  I was able to
run Friedrich Leisch's example ok with Octave 2.0.8 (uh, I should
upgrade :-) on a Linux system.

I didn't have to tell gnuplot (3.6 beta) about the encoding.  It just
worked.  However, the characters were displayed as


on the terminal (though each \nnn was actually a single character).

As an American, I'm afraid I'm too ignorant to know how to fix that,
and I must also confess that I have no idea how to enter these
characters using my keyboard!  I copied them from the message to a
script file and ran that, then recalled them using the history feature
to force them through readline.
