IIRC, the protocol LCDd exposes is ascii based and there is no provision for
indicating charset used from a client. I'd assume that the daemon interpreses
whatever you send (UTF8 I guess) as plain ascii, and asks the driver to
ascii glyphs.

Coming from Sweden, I'd like to have a solution for this too. It would be
to be able to load fonts to the LCD just like you can for the regular console!
