    Hmmm, this still doesn't seem to explain things.  As far as I can tell,
 the gallant19 font in wscons_rfont.h doesn't have any characters defined 
 past 0x7f.  In addition, sys/dev/wsfont/wsfont.c will only have bold8x16
 by default if no other fonts were configured, and as far as I could tell, 
 the shark does not specify any additional fonts, and only bold8x16 is
 included.  The bold8x16 does have characters defined, but they are much
 different and do not appear to be used.
    So I can't figure out where the heck the font characters are really
 coming from.
