Daniel U. Thibault added the comment:

"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.
