Hi there,

I'm a PostgreSQL user in the linux world but at the office there is a Mac
computer and I have a problem with postgres in it.

The problem is when I use characters with tildes in spanish like in the
follow word "países".
The next is ilustrates my problem:

test=# SHOW SERVER_ENCODING;
 server_encoding
-----------------
 UTF8
(1 row)

test=# SELECT pg_client_encoding();
 pg_client_encoding
--------------------
 UTF8
(1 row)

test=# CREATE TABLE países (nombre VARCHAR(10));
CREATE TABLE
test=# \d
        List of relations
 Schema | Name  | Type  | Owner
--------+-------+-------+--------
 public | pases | table | dragon
(1 row)

The table name is created without the "í" character but if I enclose the
string between quotes postgres works fine.
test=# CREATE TABLE "países" (nombre VARCHAR(10));
CREATE TABLE
test=# \d
        List of relations
 Schema |  Name  | Type  | Owner
--------+--------+-------+--------
 public | países | table | dragon
 public | pases  | table | dragon
(2 rows)
test=# \l
                                     List of databases
      Name       |  Owner   | Encoding |  Collation  |    Ctype    |
Access privileges
-----------------+----------+----------+-------------+-------------+-----------------------
 template0       | postgres | UTF8     | es_MX.UTF-8 | es_MX.UTF-8 |
=c/postgres          +
                 |          |          |             |             |
postgres=CTc/postgres
 template1       | postgres | UTF8     | es_MX.UTF-8 | es_MX.UTF-8 |
postgres=CTc/postgres+
                 |          |          |             |             |
=c/postgres
 test            | dragon   | UTF8     | es_MX.UTF-8 | es_MX.UTF-8 |


In the linux box all works fine, so I think the problem is something
particular to Mac,
The Mac OS X version is 10.7.4.
Darwin Users-iMac.local 11.4.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.4.0: Mon Apr  9
19:32:15 PDT 2012; root:xnu-1699.26.8~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

and the postgres version is 9.0.8.

Can Anybody help me with my problem?

Thanks in advance,
Angel
