KDE konsole - Gnome-terminal language encoding or keytab

I have been working around for some days with a konsole issue.I want to telnet from linux (redhat 9) to another server and run a DB application which shows greek fonts.This application also uses some hot keys for various tasks (e.g. F5 for committing to the database e.t.c.) .After Serious efforts i managed to make KDE' s konsole to map these hotkeys by editing a .keytab file.
The problem is i cannot see greek fonts from konsole.
I cannot find no encoding menu in KDE's konsole similar to gnome-terminal.
From gnome-terminal i can see greek by selecting an encoding and a font from menus , but i cannot map the hotkeys as i did with kde konsole and a .keytab file..
So can anyone help me in these 2 questions:

1) How can i set encoding to kde's konsole to ISO-8859-7 ,
2) Is it possible to map some keys (F1 etc) to special keys (F!1 to ctrl+u+enter) for gnome-terminal?

thank you in advance.

look into uxterm, or xterm for that matter,
the man page shows how to define fonts/locales to be used for it.

Xterm has no special menus, so it wont grab any hotkeys.

thanks for the tip.
Finally i found a solution
As i was looking on the man pages of xterm i found an option to load a special encoding and also mentioned that if you wanted to load a different encoding than
english then you had to do it through the liut command.
So i tried
liut -encoding ISO8859-7
from KDE konsole (in which i had already fixed the hotkeys issue)
, then telnet to the server and bingo t here was greek fonts .
