Language localization?

Regardless whether I run scripts within a console or within PythonWin, the
umlauts (ä = ae, ö = oe, ü = ue) and other special chars are not displayed
E.g. \n seems to be "translated" to \012.
My Win NT 4.0 Svr is English speaking, but the regionals are set to German.

I use Python now for almost half a year and always displayed English dialogs
(until now I always could work around the \012-problem  somehow
with strip() and replace() ). But now I have to display German dialogs,
where I have to use umlauts. So this grows serious now.

Any hints?

Thanks in advance and
Best regards
