Default Unicode characters on the command line

Is there a way to output unicode characters on the OpenBSD shell command line knowing only the code point? For example, code point U+00D0 = Ð. Is there a way to output this character by say, pressing the Alt key, typing 00D0, and releasing the Alt key?

There are similar mechanisms in Linux and Windows to do this, but I couldn't find anything using OpenBSD.

x11/gnome/terminal will allow unicode characters to be entered with the usual <Ctrl>+<Shift>+u followed by the code point.

It does pull in pretty much the entire GNOME desktop though...

I wasn't aware it did that, thanks. Terminator also does the same (at least on Linux), so I might install that. It also has far fewer dependencies.

That's what I use. Actually I was wondering if there was a more terminal independent way of entering unicode characters. Of course, I can always use

% echo '\u<hex-code>'

or cut-and-paste, etc.
