When we upgraded to Unicode, we forgot to reencode the default bullet
character in UTF8 which is coded into Pythonpoint, and nobody actually
eyeballed the document. I have committed this.

If you don't use subversion, then go to line 449 of stdparser.py and
change the two occurrences of '\xc2\xb7' to '\xe2\x80\xa2'.
