Symbol font characters with hex values >A0 (and <=FF) are generally displayed incorrectly in Inkscape and Gimp. The character shown is not the one corresponding to the hex value. For instance, a5 is either X (times symbol) or Yen symbol, when it should be the infinity symbol. Symbol characters <A0 display correctly. This was seen on Windows XP SP3, with Inkscape 0.48.2, Inkscape trunk (from last week) and Gimp 2.6.10.

The two applications give the same wrong characters, so the problem may be with Pango, which they both use.

For details and examples for Inkscape see:
