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.
