Hmmm. It's using Helvetica for the body elements and Times-Roman for
titles. I've verified that those are the fonts in the PDF output.

More interesting is the fact that, according to Apple's Character
Palette tool, the needed glyphs are available in each of those fonts.

So, given that, I'm still at a loss as to why the glyphs aren't showing.
