I'm looking at it through konsole, which runs bash. Konsole's encoding
is set to "Default". If I set it to UTF8, it still doesn't render.

Which brings up the question to me: how is the encoding storry supposed
to work under Debian? Say the file is UTF8 encoded, which I don't know
how to verify, is every Debian user supposed to run an UTF-8 capable
console these days?
