New submission from Robert Baker:

Using Python 2.7 (not IDLE) on Windows 10.

I have tried to use a Python 2.7 program to print the name of Czech composer 
Antonín Dvořák. I remembered to add the "u" before the string, but regardless 
of whether I encode the caron-r as a literal character (pasted from Windows 
Character Map) or as \u0159, it gives the error that character 0159 is 
undefined. This is incorrect; that character has been defined as "lower case r 
with caron above" for several years now. (The interpreter has no problem with 
the ANSI characters in the string.)
