That's very worrying; thanks for drawing it to my attention. It's odd
as they're all simple ANSI characters, no Unicode or double-byte
characters except for the D -- and unfortunately it's not in my power
to rename the country I live in.

I tested it in a Linux console, no X.11 or anything, and it still
looks fine at my end.

I've swapped the en-dashes to bullets; any better now?
