You need a font that has glyphs for all unicode characters (at least the
ones you use). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_font for a
start. I don't know enough about Windows to give you a name. Anyone?
P/S: and this has not much to do with python, which will happily send
out any unicode char, and cannot know which ones your terminal/whatever
will be able to display
