It would indeed. You wouldn't happen to know where I can get a patch that
implements it? I don't know how difficult it is fix, but I'm pretty sure
I wouldn't be able to do it easily myself.

I think this is something alot of people want, myself including.

Thanks,

I googeled around and looked at aterms sourceforge project page but
unfortunately I couldn't find a patch.

For the bug log and interested parties:
aterm's upstream, Sasha Vasko, is working on UTF-8 support for aterm
0.5.0. It will hopefully be finished in a couple of months.

Hi,
from the afterstep wiki:
"Won't List 

Unicode aterm: OK, this isn't AfterStep specifically, but you're crazy if you
run AS without aterm. We have received many requests for adding Unicode support
to aterm. Aterm is light, fast, and fun. Adding Unicode support will take away
most, if not all of these properties. In addition, adding Unicode support would
involve a complete re-write of the aterm code. There are excellent Unicode
terminals available: rxvt-unicode, mlterm, uterm are some examples."

Kind regards
Nico
