It looks like your terminal emulator doesn't support UTF-8 or is set to
assume a different character encoding. If you use a terminal emulator
that handles UTF-8 correctly, it should look right.
Or you can use the sympref command to display symbolic variables
Try either `sympref display ascii` or `sympref display flat` if you
don't want the default UTF-8 behavior.
