AFAIK, Gnokii works with UTF-8 by default (Norwegian characters work for me). Try either of these:
- Change charset to UTF-8 and retry the command.
- Redirect the output to a file (gnokii [...] > test.txt) and run `iconv -f UTF-8 test.txt -o test-new-charset.txt` to convert to the current character set.
- Redirect the output to a file (gnokii [...] > test.txt) and open in jEdit. Set the encoding to UTF-8 in the buffer options, and see if the chars show up correctly.

I´ve got the same problem with german "Umlaut" äöüÄÖÜß. To me it looks like (x)gnokii isn´t aware of these chars at all.

When viewing (x)gnokii phone book entries with norwegian
characters, these contain question marks instead of the three
norwegian letters æ, ø and å, as well as their capitalizations.

Debug output for one such entry:

I am not sure whether this is a problem with (x)gnokii or my own
terminal settings. However, the problem is the same with or
without X, and I have no problems with norwegian characters in
other programs, so I assume it might be the former.

My environment is as follows:
Nokia 6150
Nokia DAU-9P cable
gnokii-0.6.7 (using FreeBSD port gnokii-0.6.7,1)
FreeBSD 4.11-RELEASE-p3
KDE 3.3.2


Thank you in advance.
