1) If Octave  read a file with accentuated char, 
  it works ie gnuplot shows title with accentuated char in a
X11-window.   If you want to generate the postscript file, you must
"gset encoding iso_8859_1" and choose the enhanced postscript driver.

2) The cuting/pasting  or typing of  accentuated char works between
shell xterm and gnuplot xterm, but doesn't work  here with octave xterm.
Then it seems to be more a limitation of octave than a X11 limitation.
