[R] Swedish characters in data frames

I have some data that was prepared while I was Sweden. The columns 
labelled using ä or å are fine, but for some reason ö is changed to a 

so Blåbär stay the same, but Dödved becomes D.dved

I'd like to keep to original variable names

the data is read in using
vegFreqFull <- read.csv("/dat/neil/voles/veg/FrequentFull.csv", header=TRUE)

Using R 1.70 on Win 2K SP4
