Characters not displaying


Does anyone know what i need to do to get the '' character to display on a Solaris 9 server. When i try to cut and paste it onto some of my machines via telnet it displays an 'i' but other machines with the same OS version are ok. It also doesn't like Japanese Characters.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
