This is a problem with available fonts.
We use TrueType fonts that should normally provide glyphs of all unicode 
characters.
But actually Amaya uses free fonts and many of them provide only a subset of 
unicode glyphs. In your case Amaya is using a font that doesn't provide these 
glyphs.

We'll check if any available Windows font includes these glyphs.
