The Unicode handling in POV-Ray for fonts is rather old and had to work
with a lot of buggy fonts back in prehistoric times (read: 2007). Hence
it on the one hand doesn't know all the font options and on the other
hand the one it selects to find the character may be the wrong one or
just broken or incomplete in that particular font.
