It's not that hard. There are two possibilities. Either the setTool
function does not accept Unicode strings, or the default tool tip font
does not include those extended characters.

Actually, it doesn't. There are no characters in his file beyond the
base ASCII set, except for the one character in a comment, so the file
coding is irrelevant. If this worked for you, then his original code
would have worked for you also. That would imply that your tooltip uses
a different default font. No one here has mentioned what operating
systems they are using; that makes a difference.
