Re: [XSL-FO] Windows Fonts With Glyphs for Unicode Miscelaneous Symbols
Strange enough, the windows 'Symbol' font is not a unicode font. It is just
a font with 256 characters which are in an ANSI Symbol character set.
You really need a unicode font that describes the characters in the many
different symbol ranges. On my PC (Win XP Pro) I can find the 'Times New
Roman Special G1' and '...G2' fonts which fullfill this requirement (for
some symboil ranges, I'm not sure about yours).
I suggest you take a look at the Microsoft Font Properties Extension
(http://www.microsoft.com/typography/property/property.htm) which is a
handy tool to explore truetype fonts.

I'm using XSL Formatter under windows and I'm trying to figure out which
font I should expect to have a glyph for characters in the Miscelaneous
Symbols region of Unicode (\u2600-2689). In this case I'm trying to get
a white right pointing index.
I've tried this font-family specification to no avail:
