terminal. Using "Lucida Console" works, even though it doesn't
have the "snowman" character. It displays a single "missing
character" square for the snowman with both

that the console refuses to change the codepage to UTF-8 just
because of the selected font, but that's what it seems to do.
So, back to the original question: Lua's print() works perfectly
fine with UTF-8, just be sure to use a True Type font on the
console and call
at the start of the program (but really, be a good citizen and save
the old codepage to restore it at the end of the program, like in
