CVS stores the files as they come in (plus line-bread and keyword handling)
The server doesn't care about characters sets really, at least as long as
it is ascii-derived. This applied to filenames as well as data.

All clients and servers must agree on the characters sets. For the content
of java source files you can use unicode escapes or explicitly assume a
character set convention for the while project, or make your (linux?)
machines use ISO-latin-1 (I making guesses about your environment now...)

Thankfully my favourite dist default to iso-latin-1 for my language. BTW
redhat can do that although it defaults to UTF-8.
