If you have access to a Windows machine running the latest version of Subsurface, could you please check if that problem is there as well as well as figuring out a unicode symbol that could be used which is present in that font?

by downloading the latest daily i can test that.
the font shows fine on Windows 7, but my suspicion is that the Windows
Server 2008's version of Courier New could be missing those particular

Courrier New 5.0 vs Courier New 5.11

the safest bet is to use actual images in the HTML instead special font glyphs.

side note:
something broke the cmake build for me again...

"desktop-widgets/mainwindow.h:16:27: fatal error: ui_mainwindow.h: No
such file or directory"
1) clean build, 2) saw the recent thread by Gaetan and his solution
doesn't work.
