I think I've figured it out!

What I was trying to do was to enter the literal strings directly into
the IDLE interpreter.  The IDLE interpreter will not accept high
codepoints directly.

However, when I put a defined function in a separate file with high
codepoints, IDLE processes them just fine!  display produced the
expected Hex strings, and Print displayed the correct characters.
