Google and strange characters?

I'm using Etsy on Sale to fix my shop for Christmas in July. They offer an option to put SALE either in the title or description. I used it in the description because I know Google doesn't like it in titles. The insertion uses some characters on both sides of the word that I'm wondering if Google will reject. They are characters that I can't make from my keyboard so I'm thinking maybe they are something that is irrelevant to Google. Can anyone advise? I don't know if I should link to a shop item here. Three items in my Advertising section have the word. I've removed it from one and then decided to ask.

Google search doesn't care about the word sale or about characters, but google shopping cares about both & may remove your items for either problem.
today is the statutory day off for Canada Day, which was celebrated yesterday, & I don't usually work my SEO shop on holidays. & as Lisa mentions, I tend to check in much later in the day than 7:18 am, which is when this was posted. :P I always do check at least once a day though!
