Hi, Eric,

Thanks for taking a look. Sorry about messing up the special 
characters in the email, I should have attached a proper text file. 
But I did use valid UTF8 in Org: the same as in your example, code 
points #xC5 and #xB0.

Evaluating your example on my Mac gives the same result as before: 
Special characters are replaced with two dots. Tangling it and running 
the tangled file works fine.

It's not really a problem, I can work around it with \u.... escapes, 
which may be the safest approach anyway. But it's curious.

Since it works for you, it probably isn't Babel's fault. Maybe 
something Mac-specific in the communication between Emacs and the 
shell. Maybe there's a setting I can change, but all the variables 
I've been able to think of already default to utf-8-unix.
