[NTG-context] Windows console message from utf-8 source

Dear list,

I have the following minimal example:

    \message{En español usamos acentuación}

Saved as utf-8, Linux displays the message fine. (I guess MacOS X would
do the same.)

The problem is the standard console in Windows. It requires IBM codepage
850 exclusively. (Or at least, I don’t know how to display utf-8 strings.)

Is there any way to display the content of the \message above as cp850
from a utf-8 source?

Many thanks for your help,
