There are a lot of applications that can use and render these characters. At
least all those applications that can handle ISO-8859-2, or Windows-1250 or
Central-European DOS/OEM codepages.

Outlook will render them, as well as Netscape, Mozilla, Internet Explorer,
Excel, WordPerfect, Java, and this is not limited to Windows as they also
exist even in MacOS Classic with its MacCentral charset, or on Unix/Linux
with XFree86 (even those that don't have a TrueType font renderers, as there
are a lot of fonts built at least for ISO-8859-2)...

As I said, your most probable issue is that your client application is
configured to handle only ISO-8859-1 or Windows-1252 or CP850 or CP437 only.
If this is so, there's no way to display them:

What you can do is only:

1) modify the client configuration to support the Latin2 charset at least,

2) update your client application so that it handles at least the Latin2
charset with a version localized for Central Europe (but I think you should
upgrade to an application that supports Unicode support)...

Neither Sybase or Windows should be the cause of your problem (see solution
