Then my guessing was correct, but in this case there
is a better solution. Instead of relying on the
value of LANG, FP-IDE should directly check the con-
sole mode. This can be done using the 'kbd_mode'
command. If the mode reported is UTF-8, then use the
translation table, otherwise assume CP437.
At least, this will make it more reliable with UTF-8
