I suppose you mean ≤ (less then or equal) since ≆ is
quite a different mathematical symbol that has no respective glyph in
You can specify comma-separated list of font names inside font-family
attribute. In such a case font selection will be governed by
"font-selection-strategy" property. You can force formatter to
re-evaluate font selection for every character by setting
font-selection-strategy="character-by-character". Your example will
<fo:inline font-family="Courier, Symbol"
font-selection-strategy="character-by-character">a ≤ b</fo:inline>

DJ> I may be missing something, but if I want to render a portion of text such as:
DJ> <code>a ≆ b</code>
DJ> then I am not helped by producing things like:
DJ> <fo:inline font-family="Courier" font-size="10pt">a ≆ b</fo:inline>
DJ> as Unicode character 0x2246 (less than or equal to) has to be rendered using the Symbol font (I presume, as only this AFM has a
DJ> glyph 'lessequal').
DJ> Do I have to take additional measures such as:
DJ> <fo:inline font-family="Courier" font-size="10pt">a <fo:inline font-family="Symbol">≆</fo:inline> b</fo:inline>
