No, by "ASCII-only" I meant displays that can display only ASCII.
I use tty environments all the time, and they're never ASCII-only.

It shouldn't be a lot of work.  I don't normally use the Linux
console, but I looked into this problem and on my Ubuntu desktop
the fix is simple:

  export LC_ALL=en_US.utf8

After executing these two shell commands, I can see directed
quotes ‘like this’ with no problem, both within Emacs and when
catting to the terminal.  If it matters, I'm running Ubuntu 11.10
x86 on a 5-year-old desktop.

Does this approach work for you?
