Print it where? To the terminal (which one?)? In HTML? With some GUI?
Assuming that you have a Unicode-capable terminal, you can find out the encoding
it uses by looking at sys.stdout.encoding. Encode your Unicode string with that
encoding, and print it. E.g., I use iTerm on OS X and set it to use UTF-8 as the
In : import sys
In : sys.stdout.encoding
In : print u'\u03a7\u00b2'.encode(sys.stdout.encoding)

that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had
an underlying truth."
