Unhappy Problem displaying Unicode special characters in Urxvt/rxvt-unicode terminal


Recently I tried to switch to Urxvt from Terminator terminal emulator. It has it's own benefits. But I have problem to display Unicode special characters like ➜. It just show an 'a' with a '`' at top of it.
I read Urxvts FAQ and searched over the internet but didn't find anything useful.
my locale:
Code:
LANG=en_US
LC_CTYPE=en_US
LC_NUMERIC="en_US"
LC_TIME="en_US"
LC_COLLATE=C
LC_MONETARY="en_US"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US"
LC_PAPER="en_US"
LC_NAME="en_US"
LC_ADDRESS="en_US"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_US"
LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US"
LC_ALL=
and my .Xdefaults:
Code:
URxvt*font: xft:Terminus:pixelsize=12

URxvt*scrollBar: False
URxvt*scrollTtyOutput: False
URxvt*scrollTtyKeypress: True
URxvt*secondaryScroll: True
URxvt*saveLines: 8000
URxvt*letterSpace: 0
URxvt.perl-ext-common : default,matcher
URxvt.urlLauncher     : firefox
URxvt.matcher.button  : 1
URxvt.perl-ext-common : tabbed
URxvt.tabbed.tabbar-fg: 5
URxvt.tabbed.tabbar-bg: 0
URxvt.tabbed.tab-fg:    14
URxvt.tabbed.tab-bg:    0
Did I miss any special configuration here?

EDIT: I'm using Slackware 14.0 and urxvt v9.15

Hi, this is 2012, not the middle ages, you should give utf8 locale a go.

Glad it worked.
I highly recommend using these too: https://github.com/muennich/urxvt-perls

That guy also made a kickass simple image viewer too: https://github.com/muennich/sxiv if anyones into that sort of stuff.
