Well, I received your mail in different encodings, so I could only save
parts and then include the above using linux pine ;-) 

1. all tests was done using iso8859-2 (don't know what is cp 1252? we use
here cp1250 on win; but I'm using exactly what I want in dos/cmd window,
not relaying on emacs or other programs which can change what I'm really
viewieng behind the scene). So I can test and see the terminal messages on
both machines running Win and Linux staing in the _same_ I/O encoding.

2. I hope that the latex example attached to my mail (in latin1 cp8859-1)
will explain more. Please just run latex on it and play as I suggested.
