After searching far and wide and reading all the HOWTOs etc.
I'm still at a loss as to how to make a simple copy/paste
work within xterm and between xterm and XEmacs.
If I cat a utf-8 encoded XML file containing Russian and it
displays just fine. If I select a single word by left
double clicking and paste with a middle click I see a
mixture of '@', '^' and a few Cyrillic characters.
If I paste into XEmacs 21.4 in a buffer with the buffer
file coding system set to utf-8 I see a string of '?'.
Interestingly I can paste the selection into Windows
Notepad and Word and it displays just fine too.
Am I missing something very basic in my configuration/setup
or is this a known problem? I'm wondering whether my
X server is not up to the task or perhaps are there
some x resources I should be setting?
I am running the xterm XFree86 4.2.0(165) that comes
with Linux Redhat 8 with display support from Hummingbird
eXceed X Server 7.1 on Windows NT 4.0 and XEmacs 21.4 (patch 8)

I'm invoking xterm as:
xterm -u8 -fn
