TTY character set, display special characters in text-mode login to TTYi


Hi everybody!
I am doing some programming, and using different special characters, language specific, like "ραινăβțξ...". Now, when I use a virtual console all characters are displayed correctly, but if I log in to a text-mode terminal (TTYi), with CTRL+ALT+Fi, it only shows some of them.
The comando "locale" gives the same output in boath cases:
Code:
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_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=
How can I make it display all chars in TTY?
Thanks!

What do you mean by 'all chars'? Do you know that Unicode Consortium have standardized more than a hundred thousand characters?

NevemTeve: well, not all all of them, just the usual extended latin and eastern european. I don't exactly know about this encoding, the standards and all that stuff, If I'd have the time to study that, I wouldn't be asking here. I just want a simple solution, so that the TTY terminal would display the chars like in a konsole, as in both cases it appears to be an "en_US.UTF-8" character set - if that's what it means.
