That explains it, I think: info.el thinks your console can display
those characters.

Are there any other possible values that will cause these characters
display correctly?  Or is the Linux console unable to display them no
matter what?

Regardless, we could have a customizable option in info.el to force
display of the Unicode punctuation as their ASCII equivalents, even if
the terminal seems capable of the Unicode display.
