"It seems to me the statement is correct as written. What experiments indicate otherwise?"
Here's a simple one:
>>> print «1»
The guillemets are certainly not ASCII (Unicode AB and BB, well outside ASCII's 7F upper limit) but are rendered as guillemets. (Guillemets are easy for me 'cause I use a French keyboard) I haven't actually checked yet what happens when writing to a file. If Python is unable to write anything but ASCII to file, it becomes nearly useless.
