Hi Chris.
I did have some trouble last year with printing and displaying different
national characters,  with a multi-language application running in a single
AS/400. For example, if your running TCP/IP apps Telnet and LPR, you can no
longer determine what character id to use from your display and printer
device.
In my experience, the best rule of thumb to avoid trouble is: in your PRTF
and DSPF match the correct CHRID with each country (for Sweden that's 278
697 if my memory doesn't fail me), with PF use the CCSID *HEX or 65535.
 You do have CCSID on DSPF as well, but I don't recall if you need to
manipulate them.
