This does nothing to address the situation I am talking about, where
these bad characters need to be removed altogether so they will not
foul up text files handed to LaTeX. Also Sebastian's suggestion of
(standard-display-ascii ?\200 (vector (decode-char 'ucs #x253c))),
etc., does nothing either. As far as I can see both of these
approaches merely permit the "correct" display of \222 etc. inside
Emacs. That's not my problem!
