--- Comment #4 from Christian Kujau <lists at nerdbynature.de> ---
FWIW, MacOS seems to have fixed this as well, and they switched to using UTF-8
recently:

----------------------------------------------
$ strings /usr/bin/whois | grep -A1 de.w
de.whois-servers.net
-T dn -C UTF-8 %s

$ whois denic.de | grep ß
Address: Kaiserstraße 75-77
Address: Kaiserstraße 75-77
----------------------------------------------

Until this is fixed, the following workaround could be used for .de domains:

$ whois -h whois.denic.de -- "-T dn,ace denic.de"
