I don't think so: the terminals I know don't replace a char with
a question mark if the font has no glyph for it (they use some other
representation, like an empty box).  It sounds instead like your
terminal is using an encoding that does not include those chars we're
using, so Emacs replaces them with a question mark.

What is your terminal's encoding?  What about your locale?
