Summary: Character encoding

Initial Comment:

I'm querying a CGI posting some data. If the CGI's
output contains the characters like , , , , ...,
curls output is ok when viewing it with a browser, but
in tty mode, I just see the raw binary encoded
characters returned from the CGI:

ie: "vacío" instead of "vaco"

It would be great if curl could unencode the CGI's
output in order to display it without a browser (ASCII).
