Errm... What you care about is LC_CTYPE (character set), not LANG
(language), methinks. Anyhow...  I've compiled my own fr_CA locale file. If
you're interested just e-mail me and I'll send you a copy. After that doing
"setenv LC_CTYPE fr_CA" will make nvi happy... assuming it calls
setlocale() somewhere. (I did a small test similar to yours and it worked
iff I did a call to setlocale().)

I'll probably do a set of Debian packages for locale support at some
point in the future... After I've done all the other stuff I have to do.
