International characters in xterm

None of the virtual terminals available on my debian (woody) system are able
to display international characters, especially Swedish ones like (å,ä,ö).
I used to have the same problem on the console but this disappeared when
doing a 
dpkg-reconfigure locales
and selecting Swedish as my default locale. No other X application seems
to have trouble displaying these chars.

Below are some error messages which might help resolve this issue.

> emacs &
>Warning: locale not supported by C library, locale unchanged

>dumpkeys (in xterm)
Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console

> perl -pe''
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LANGUAGE = "swedish",
        LC_ALL = (unset),
        LANG = "sv_SE.UTF-8"
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

I have also done a 
>apt-get install euro-support*
