Problems with character encoding on UNIX

This is my problem: My application uses typical Norwegian character like "oslash", i.e. 0x00f8 in the ISO8859-1 character encoding. The "oslash" is displayed perfectly OK by my application EXCEPT WHEN USED IN WINDOW TITLES. In those cases it is displayed as a "1/2" character.

WHY?? I've tried excplicitely converting my internal string to ISO8859-1, but with no luck whatsoever. Inspecting the default character encoding of my application during runtime also reveals that it IS ISO8859-1.

The application works OK on XP.

HELP!! How do I get my "oslash" in the window titles!!
