There's a way that you can demonstrate whether or not your shell is the culprit here.

Character 0x8F is 143 decimal. Do, Start/Run... and enter cmd (assuming you're using NT), and bring up a "DOS" box. Then at the command line, enter the command echo, followed by a space, then hold down the ALT key and using the numeric keypad enter 1 4 3 and then let go of the ALT key. On my system this produces a graphical character. When I hit return the system echos the character back to me, which tells me the character is not being filtered by the shell and is being sent to whatever program you're invoking.

Now some people use different shell programs, Cygwin, 4NT, MKS, etc. Validate that your shell isn't eating the character and this should assist technical support.

Quick question, what are you doing with character 0x8F in the command line?
