here in Italy (and other countries where accented characters are used), the DBF files are often encoding in a way that the right DBF file encoding has to be specified. For shp2pgsql, I use for example "-W WINDOWS-1252" to make this happen.
If using QGIS/SPIT as is, accented characters get damaged. It would be great to have either a free text field or better a list of possible encodings to select from. Also Asian QGIS users will be grateful.
