You mean thinks like notation data and user IDs? By definition this
must all be encoded in UTF-8. GnuPG does this and tries to display it
correctly on all terminals.
Older PGP versions ignored the UTF-8 requirement and stored user
IDs as they are entered.
The option --charset may be used to force the use of conversion from
utf-8 to latin-1, latin-2 or koi-8 or leave it as utf-8. On modern
systems this is not required, though.
