I have just to type ~<space> or ^<space> to get these
symbols. It's the same in all applications, including emacs.
However, these symbols aren't at the same place in all
keyboard maps.

I noted that xfontsel has a few more options than the
GTK/Gnome Font Selection Tool, but they seem to be fairly
related here. The gnome-terminal with its default font
("Monospace 10") is capable of displaying ALL characters in
the UTF-8-demo.txt (from the link that you have sent to me):

I couldn't see them. What pages cause that?

Although I don't know how solve the three problems above,
the fact that they don't happen here means they are only
configuration issues. Anyway, I remember that some strange
problems were solved after I put the following two lines in
the ~/.bashrc:

export LANGUAGE=pt_BR.UTF-8
export LANG=pt_BR.UTF-8
