Gnome Terminal - Extended ASCII Display

Hi guys,

I was tinkering with a simple C program that displays the extended ASCII characters from 180-255, and ran into a slight problem using a virtual terminal in Gnome.

ASCII code 180 is character \uffff
ASCII code 181 is character \uffff
ASCII code 182 is character \uffff
ASCII code 183 is character \uffff
Instead of displaying the proper symbols, a box shape (the \uffff in the quote) was displayed for all of the extended codes. However, when I ran the program while not in X Windows, it worked (and displayed the characters) just fine. Has anybody ever ran into this problem before? If so, is there some way to solve the issue?

Aha - seems that I just needed to change the character encoding on the terminal and everything works. Ignore this, or delete if you'd like.
