Thanks!  That was it...I opened a new konsole window, set the encoding
to UTF-8 (which my arch linux box is using) and the lines show up fine.

On a related note, I guess I can set LANG=en_US.UTF-8 in my .bashrc and
have that as my default, no?  Any nuances on en_US.UTF-8 vs. ISO8859?
I've never really ever needed to deal with locales before, but I believe
UTF-8 offers more characters, no?
