Which version are you running? There's recode.pl and charsetwars.pl
in irssi-scripts in Woody, and if you grab a CVS build, there's
recode support built in too. (Actually, I don't know that charsetwars.pl
was in Woody. I only discovered it recently. ^_^)

I've been using irssi from a UTF-8 terminal on SJIS channels on my
Woody web server since September 2003, at least. The enormous time
between irssi releases means I've had to run a CVS version on my
unstable local box for about twelve months, to fix interesting
DCC and frontend bugs.
