Konsole uses the system mono-space font by default (or at least, it definitely does in KDE 4, I'm not sure about KDE 3), which is very likely to be from the Deja Vu family on a modern desktop.

So, in summary, I would expect Konsole to be using the DVS Mono or BVS Mono font on most desktops by default which I believe have the required characters.
