This seems to be the problem.  Portuguese can use ISO8859-1, ISO8859-15, or 
UTF8.  The only difference between ISO8859-1 and ISO8859-15 is that the latter 
has the Euro "€" character available.  UTF8 is the 8 bit encoding of UniCode. 
However in all cases if you display something with a character set different 
from what it was produced with, you WILL have problems.

Now, if using this knowledge, you can please explain exactly what you are doing 
and exactly what the problem is, we will try to provide further help.
