Got it! Your comments led me to do some searching/experimenting. In seamonky
there are a couple of settings controlling the look: Apearance->Fonts and
Character Encoding. I needed to set Character Encoding to UTF-8, but what was
not obvious at all is that the font configuration for UTF-8 was in a setting for
"Fonts for: Other Languages". Generally, I use "Western". Once I set the fonts
for that *and* the Character Encoding, I was able to control things.
Thanks for the input.
