OK, so it *can* display it.
But why it does not, when showing a filename?
(which was what I did in the previous message to check)
I created a file "aÃâç.txt" in WinExplorer, and then:
Volume in drive C is Primary
Volume Serial Number is 8437-B5FC
Directory of C:\
23/09/2009 06.58 0 aÃ??.txt
1 File(s) 0 bytes
Errr.... actually I can't even reproduce your example.
If I write "echo â" at the prompt I get this:
Active code page: 437
