Tru rxvt-unicode (there are 3 flavours in debian and I compile my own
so I can't tell you which one to try). It's what I use (infact for me
it's mutt in screen over ssh in urxvt :) and the above looks like what
may well be Hebrew.

The other thing you may wish to make sure of is that you are using a
UTF-8 locale. For me that's en_AU.UTF-8. If you don't you'll probably
see a lot of question marks (I know I do).
