By default, Gnuplot's X11 terminal does not support UTF-8 characters when displaying text labels or setting plot titles.
To enable support for UTF-8, add the lines below to your
! gnuplot settings gnuplot*font: mbfont:-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal----100-100---iso10646- gnuplot*encoding: utf-8
To enable these settings, type the following command at the shell prompt.
xrdb -merge .Xdefaults
To avoid having to type this command repeatedly, the command may be placed in your shell script resource file,
~/.profile for example.
