    Thank you, this approach works. There is something strange however. In:

    <text>&#x2217; = asteriskmath symbol, &#x221A; radical symbol and &#x221D;
    proportional symbol</text>

    only the asteriskmath and the proportional symbols are printed but NOT the
    radical symbol.

    The symbol entry in fonts.xml looks like:
    <font name="Symbol"

    The stylesheet is using: <xsl:attribute name="font-family">'Times Roman',
    Symbol, 'Zapf Dingbats'</xsl:attribute>

    Any idea?

    We still working with ascii encoding for some reasons (CMS and tooling).
