You really shouldn't be using wmii 3.5. It's ancient. Your best
bet if you want unicode, sadly, is to use a version that
supports xft and then choose a font like xft:terminus or
xft:fixed. Failing that, just using a font like terminus with
standard X font sets should probably get you half decent

That said, I chose the current default font,
'-*-fixed-medium-r-*-*-13-*-*-*-*-*-*-*', because it seems to
have the most reliable support under standard X font rendering.
