What 'special Eastern Europen characters' - can you send support at march-hare.com a sample file (the newsgroup does not support attachments)?  Only send the attachment to support at .... All other questions should go to this newsgroup.

What -k options have you set on the file?  Do a 'cvs status filename' and/or 'cvs log filename' to find out.
