The console uses the "OEM code page". The Windows conversion
routine from Unicode to the OEM code page provides the lossy
conversion that you observe in listing.

Unfortunately, the OEM code page conversion is not available
from Python. What you can do is to use

  u.encode(sys.stdout.encoding, "replace")

This will replace unprintable characters with question marks.
