Do you know the reason why for characters 170 and 186 the default table
use 170 and 186? They are in separate set. To solve my problem I put
in my .Xdefault file:

*VT100.charClass: 170:48,186:48

xterm -version says that I have: XFree86 3.3.6(88c). I can't find
this one on http://dickey.his.com/xterm/xterm.log.html

Maybe I should install a new version. Anyway I figure it out that
I have a version with a older documentation.

I don't know C. I know fortran and I knew pascal. I could figure it
out that line 86 from charclass.c:
SetCharacterClassRange(160, 191, -1);
is responsable for my trouble.

Thank you again for your help.
