I am not sure what encoding I am using here.  I looked for a command
that would tell me the encoding or character set currently in use and
did not really find anything.  This is not unusual, as I have no
experience  here and I think I use the defaults.

Mine here shows exactly what yours does.

I do not hear the characters you inserted  in this mail, nor do I hear
them in w3m.  You might want to set tts-strip-octals to true and see if
that helps.  

I hope this helps,
