The Net Bible title doesn't show up properly either in BibleCS, so it could
be possible that it is an issue with the rendering of the text there.  Since
the suggestion below didn't work, I'll leave it as is for the minute.

Both are UTF-8

That sounded promising, but while in BibleCS it worked for the 'About' text
(sort of, with \'A1 returning a different character than expected from an
extended ASCII table, but with the general idea in place), it didn't work
for the 'Description' text, which appears when hovering over the module name
tab.  It also doesn't work in Xiphos for either.
