[xep-support] missing special hyphenation character

I'm trying to use the character &#x21B5; (carriage return symbol) as the
value of hyphenation-character in a block that displays a code sample. The
carriage return symbol indicates that a long line of code is broken in the
display. But it appears that the font selection process does not take place
for the hyphenation character. Here is a short sample that illustrates the

      font-family="Courier New, Arial Unicode MS"
ndlineSometextinthefirstlineandmaybeasecondlineSome text

This displays in the PDF an empty square box where the symbol should be at
the end of the hyphenated line.

When I use font-family="Courier New", then I get the same thing.

When I use font-family="Arial Unicode MS", then I get the right symbol, but
my code text is not in the right font.

Now the weird part: if I put the &#x21B5; character in the line of text
within the block, then it renders fine inline *and* it shows as the
hyphenation character. I can even insert inline another character from that
font (such as &#x22A4;), and I will still get the correct hyphenation
symbol. That suggests that the secondary font is not being loaded based on
the hyphenation-character, but once it is loaded for the text, it becomes
available for the hyphenation.
