  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?
  The Tk "Python Shell" window shows:
  Python 2.4.3 (#69, Mar 29 2006, 17:35:34) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
  IDLE 1.1.3

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.
