You have two possible options with Emacs:

	• you can set dired-listing-switches to contain ``-w´´ and/or ``-v´´  
which tell Apple's ls programme to print "raw" characters,
	• you can set dired-listing-switches to contain ``-N´´ or ``--literal 
´´ which tells gls to print "raw" characters,
	• if you have real gls programme (from Fink or MacPorts) you can  
tell dired to use 'gls --dired' (or 'gls -D') via the variable dired- 

Of course you can combine many option to one "word" as in ``-alw´´ or  

The other option is to set an environment variable LC_CTYPE which  
points to an UTF-8 encoding, de_DE.UTF-8 for example ('locale -a'  
will list all available ones). You can also set it in your init file:

	(setenv "LC_CTYPE" "UTF-8")

This will enable Emacs to handle the contents of all buffers as  
Unicode, i.e., umlauts or other accented characters will be treated  
as "normal" ones.
