Weird charaters in yelp

Frank Hart
When opening Yelp, every help file I've seen so far displays strange
charaters in the table of contents:

What am I doing wrong here?

Does anyone has an idea? I've searched the lists multiple times but all
I could find was an old Gnome bug
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=310191). I would really like
to know what's the problem.

tnx,

That's it! Thanks a lot.
But does this mean that the bitmap fonts, which are of a lower quality
according to fontconfig, are beeing used in stead of the outline fonts?

BTW, I've cc-ed your reply to the list so others can benefit from your
infinite wisdom. Hope that's ok :)

This probably means the pages are using some characters that are only
available in some bitmap fonts. They should probably be removed entirely
instead, or replaced by similar characters that are available in
standard free truetype fonts.
