gnome-terminal works in utf-8 too; but I agree it is quite undocumented;
and not as easy to use as with xterm (where the utf-8 support is automatic
if the locale is utf-8 too).

Note also that xterm has a cut and paste bug (at least the version I have),
it wrongly converts to utf-8: the bytes composing a utf-8 char are each one
of them converted to utf-8 as if they were latin1 chars.

You have to set the terminal to utf-8; for that you must echo some value,
echo -e '\033@8' 

or something like that (don't remember the exact value right now)
