I tried what Moshe suggested and tried also to prnt a text in utf-8.
Both worked in Windows XP using the latest ActivePerl 5.8.4 build 810.

(I also tried the utf-8 version with some older Perl (5.8.3) and it did
not work).

Here is the code back (with te utf8 version too)

use Tk;
use encoding 'iso8859-8';
$string = "ùìåí";
#use utf8;
#$string = "להתראות";
my $top = MainWindow->new();
     -text => $string,
