Sounds like a locale/font mismatch.
You could try installing the terminus font and see if the consolechars
command lets you specify a unicode version of the font:
$ apt-cache search terminus
$ apt-get install console-terminus
$ cd /usr/share/consolefonts
$ consolechars Uni3-Terminus12x6.psf.gz # syntax ???
This is what I get with the above font:
As you know, I use kbd rather than console-tools and the corresponding
"setfont" command to choose my font.
Another possibility if you can't get the console to work satisfactorily
is to start a terminal emulation on top of the console.
I've had some success with fbiterm - with the added benefit that the
(patched) version I'm running supports 256 colors.
Hope this helps.
