This is, of course, totally dependent on the font 
selected for use in the Results window. One can see 
this by executing the loop once, then changing the 
font (you do not need to execute the loop again). 
The displayed characters change depending on what 
is assigned to a particular ASCII code for that 
character set.

The real limitation is that the Results window will 
only use mono-spaced fonts, and there are usually 
few of these on most PCs, certainly few with extended 
selections of accented characters.
