  IIRC there was a situation a few years ago where you had to install a

that there were X terminals in 2005 that could handle UTF-8, but I don't
know if the default xterm did.

xterm's supported UTF-8 since 1999:


(likewise, it's been possible to change the encoding)

Default xterm doesn't but if you want xterm with utf-8, that's another xterm install option. All you have to do is ensure you have en-USutf-8 installed as a locales option, and xterm utf-8 will pick it up.
