Tried it today, but no effect. As far as I can tell there isn't any
framebuffer-support active at this time. Could it be that the
Sun-Console doesn't support UTF-8 in its native mode? Perhaps using
framebuffer might even solve these problems. (just guessing but might
be worth a try...)

Thank you for your time,
