character problems



Sometimes, I'm not sure what is causing it,  I'll get a slash followed by 
three numbers like: \222  
One sentence read like:
here\222s  the solution ... I've had....

I was assuming \222 was an ' but then the ' works later in the line.

Probably related, I recieved one email (spam) that all I could see was a 
single strange character, and a phone number; same with cat and less .  If 
I use 'vi' to open the file, I can see additional characters (extended 
ascii?).  

contents of i18n:

LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"
LC_COLLATE="C"


Any clue what's going on?

Roger
