Thanks for the quick response, Niki, but I don't need to change the  
encoding (at least I don't think I do).  I just want ls to show me  
the non-ASCII characters in its output and cat to display the  
characters properly in my xterm or gnome-terminal.  Currently, both  
of these commands display them as "?".  My current test case has a  
file which contains a "ç" (0xE7, c with cedilla) in its filename, and  
an "í" (0xED, i acute) inside the file.
