And in reality, this part of OpenBSD is C99-compliant. There's absolutely *nothing* in the standard that says you have to support any locale except the C locale (which we do). If something has to be documented, it's probably that we just support 8 bit locales for now... That said, this will eventually improve, and yes, this is a long road. If it was only the C library, it would be rather simple... The xterm in OpenBSD can do it. It supports the utf8 option. You will need an editor that supports utf8 characters as well. Both vim and emacs do. There are lots of programs in ports that have fairly decent level of locale support. Heck, I can actually write japanese in OpenBSD, for instance, and that's a *whole lot* more complicated than just french characters.
