I think this will work for you. It's a pretty simple procedure and I thought someone might have answered it by now.

Everything you wanted to know about special character mapping but were afraid to ask:

Gotcha. Back to the drawing board. Now is that what would normally be displayed in the language Windows has been currently installed you wish to change? So you need to remap ASCII display characters mapping. The thing you should be aware of is the change becomes global and it will always display the alternate character. Probably a registry change. I can dig up some directions but you will need to make the changes in the registry yourself.

OK Well I see now. What language was used in your original Windows install?
