It seems to depend on the browser. I had the problem with Firefox 27.0.1 on Windows XP ; the link "Feedback" didn't work with this browser, this is why I posted here

With Chrome 33.0.1750.117 m and Opera 12.12 the characters are recognised

I reported the issue on the feedback form, and discovered it was already known by the PythonAnywhere team (https://www.pythonanywhere.com/forums/topic/213/). Hope it will be fixed quickly, it doesn't give a good impression for newcomers to Python whose first contact with the language is this console
