This is something where Google is very helpful. I haven't dealt with this
before, but a look at the definition of the protocol says there isn't any
standard encoding. As a matter of fact, the RFC specifically says there is
no standard character set. The only thing it specifies is that IRC uses
an 8-bit protocol. Since UTF-8 that doesn't work, I'd try using ISO-8859 and
CP1252 and see if those work better.
