Hello again, 

I´m still having problems with international characters.  I tried 
setting LANG=C

host root # env |grep LANG
host root # /etc/init.d/apache restart
 * Stopping 
[ ok ]
 * Starting apache...   

In the apache configuration I placed

I also was able to reproduce the same error on the webdemo.   And took a 

URL of test:

the offending character in this case is hex code 0xE1  and there are 
some other characters I need as well.   

The other error I have is:  Error: Unknown state/county/country: A//ES
Here is another screen shot of the problem:
