font or face problem in emacs

When I compile a program in emacs, I notice that I get some strange escape sequences in the compiler output window of emacs. For example, if my program is:
int main(){
    int i,j;
    std::cout << "Hellow Wrold!" << std::endl;
    return 0;

and I compile it with:
g++ -Wall -ansi -o testprog

I get the following in my emacs compiler message window (notice the strange characters around the variables and function names):
g++ -Wall -ansi -o testprog In function ‘int main()’: warning: unused variable ‘i’ warning: unused variable ‘j’

Compilation finished at Thu Jun 29 15:01:30

The strange characters around a variable are(I have typed the backslashes and numbers so that they are displayed properly here):
on left hand side: â\200\230
on right hand side: â\200\231

I guess this has something to do with the face of those strings in the compiler output in emacs. And that I may not have proper fonts installed. Am I on the right track? All inputs are welcome in solving this little problem.

BTW, this started happening only after I reintalled Debian Etch a few weeks ago.

I have:
> dpkg -l *emacs* | grep ^ii
