AHA! Now I know what is happening.
The default font used by wsfont if none are explicitly specified in the
kernel config file is bold8x16. That font has an encoding of
WSDISPLAY_FONTENC_IBM, which causes wsfont.c to remap the displayed
characters, and that mapping has an entry for the 0xdc character, but none
for 0xdd - 0xdf, which matches what I actually see displayed.
