I checked aven from survex-aven which uses wx and unicode characters display
correct there, we don't have reports filed against wx for such problems in
any other apps, and searching the BTS I can't find any filed against the apps
themselves, so this looks to be specific to xchm rather than a generic wx
issue.  Hence I'm reassinging this bug to xchm.
