What is "the Symbol font"?
I assume it has something to do with Microsoft's operating systems,
but I am not sure now that I haven't used Windows in two months...

More specific question, do those entities have Unicode codepoints?

Display a standard symbol for "unsupported character", thereby giving
the disenfrenchizers-of-terminal-users what they seem to want?

There is something to swith to ALTCHARSET, usually used for line-drawing
characters.  (as in Lynx popup boxes.)  Other than that, ncurses has
no idea about charsets or fonsts AKAIK.
