Good spotting! Could cp850 be equally likely? I think a French locale
is more likely to be cp850 than cp437.

That should work, but check your config.sys and autoexec.bat to see
if something has set your default CodePage to 437 or 850. The default
I would expect is 1252 (the Windows Western European codepage). Do
other European users need to set locale-coding-system to cp850 or
cp437 to get what they expect? If so the default needs changing.
