    utf8 - solaris intel/amd

    765722
      Hi guys

      I apologize if my question is trivial, but I am out of ideas at this point.

      I have a Solaris 10 Intel installation , full scale one
      The installation has been configured UTF8

      Now I have this character

      'ä'

      But when I paste it in vi I get

      'C$'


      Looks to me like it's octal representation


      My terminal client is using UTF8 character encoding

      -bash-3.00$ cat /etc/default/init
      TZ=US/Central
      CMASK=022
      LANG=en_US.UTF-8

      -bash-3.00$ locale
      LANG=en_US.UTF-8
      LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
      LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
      LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
      LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
      LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
      LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
      LC_ALL=


      -bash-3.00$ locale -m
      ja/charmap.src
      ja_JP.PCK/charmap.src
      ja_JP.eucJP/charmap.src
      iso_8859_1/charmap.src

      I also tried

      uncompress /usr/lib/localedef/src/en_US.UTF-8/*Z followed by reboot to no avail


      What am missing / doing wrong ?


      Many thanks
      AP
