Well, maybe it is :-)

I'd need to know more. I gather from your mail that you are entering the
character into psql from a console. Several factors are relevant here:

  - which character encoding does your console have?
    (if it is, e.g. iso-8859-x then this will be probably the culprit)
  - which client encoding is set? (in psql type SHOW CLIENT_ENCODING;)
  - which encoding is the server using (I'd guess utf-8; it doesn't need
    to be the same as the client's, since it will try to convert).
