Hello Ben, Steve, Polytropon

Well unfortunately it's not working still.
As I've mentioned it seems to work only
for login prompt (the moment after boot when "login:" is displayed).
Once I'm logged in I can't type accentuated chars anymore. Got nothing
special though. Just default xterm (set in /etc/ttys) and csh as shell.

Hello, Polytropon, Steve

Thank you guys for your help. I've figured it out finally.
So to use vt(4) with accented west European glyphs I had to do the followin=
g
in ~/.login_conf

me:\
    :charset=3DUTF-8:

in rc.conf
keymap=3Dfr.acc

Steve, yes the handbook I was trying to read is fr_FR.ISO8859-1. There is n=
o fr_FR.UTF-8 handbook unfortunately (at least did not find on svn).
Also should the handbook (the i18l section) be updated since vt(4) is defau=
lt driver?

Hi Vitalio,

That=92s great it=92s now working for you!

Do you think you would be able to generate some text to add to the i18l sec=
tion of the handbook with your findings about vt(4), and submit it in a bug=
 report?

You could initially just submit this as plain text, or even better if you w=
anted to go the next step, as a diff to the handbook source.

https://svnweb.freebsd.org/doc/head/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/l10n/

Instructions on how to submit improvements to the handbook are described in=
 French here:

Regards,
Ben
