I am portuguese, and so I need accents above a few letter, like a, e and 
i. I mean:         , etc etc etc...
I am really confused with the accents.

In most X apps these accents work well, but for example, in a xterm, 
with the "ee" editor, I can write the accented letter correctly. But 
when I use "more" to read the file I just created with "ee" I cant see 
these accented letters correctly!

With aterm, not even with "ee" this works it appears: ~a, 'e,`e, `i, etc 
etc etc...

/etc/rc.conf has:

/etc/X11/xorg.conf has:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "kbd"
    Option "XKbModel" "abnt2"
    Option "XKbLayout" "pt"

how can I solve this?
Is it impossible to list and also name files with accented letter?
