Displaying characters with accents (fwd)

I'm a spansih Linux user, but I mostly prefer to have my system in 
English. The only thing I want about Spanish is to be able to write and 
read characters with accent.

Following some articles, I have configured my system to use a keymap with 
accent (es-cp850.map.gz) and a font capable of displaying these characters 
(las9w-16.psfu). In addition, I have turned on the options input-meta and 
output-meta, and turned off convert-meta.

However, I cannot write these characters in the commandline, I only get
beeps. In addition, when using TAB to autocomplete a path containing an 
accent, bash writes the octal code of the character. But, when I change 
into this directory, bash displays it correctly in the prompt. Finally, vi 
and emacs behave in the same way.

Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance.
