it looks like yer (mostly?) fscked. from the zsh FAQ,
“2.7: What is zsh's support for Unicode/UTF-8?
`Unicode', or UCS for Universal Character Set,
is the modern way of specifying character sets.
It replaces a large number of ad hoc ways of
supporting character sets beyond ASCII.
`UTF-8' is an encoding of Unicode that is particularly
natural on Unix-like systems.
Q: Does zsh support UTF-8?
A: [ ... ] ZLE (the Zsh Line Editor) has no concept of
character encodings, and is confused by multi-octet
however http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Zsh claims:
At this time the developent versions of zsh support utf-8
(your [sic] can simply install zsh from cvs. With this
feature you can use zsh with any language.”
I assume yer kiloage will vary.
