The attached image is the desired, correct rendition. So there is hope for my project! Now why do you think I don't get it in IDLE (Win XP, Win 200). Any suggestions on what I should investigate to fix this?

I get exactly the same thing in both, attached. I called this 'one
character' in my ignorance, but I guess the characters get combined.
Strangely, if I move the cursor through it with right-arrow key, it
"explodes" into 3 characters while it has the focus - these are the same
ones in the unicode standards sheets for those bytes. But normally it
appears as above.
