Ah, thanks. When you first read the section (and I've read it several
times) it doesn't clearly say that the Schoolbook does not have that
glyph. It is sort of hinted in a round about way if you read the
section a couple of times more with some serious thought. Or maybe I'm
just a bit thick. :-)

The file on my work computer says it had used these fonts:
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: font ArialUnicodeMS
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: font CenturySchL-Roma
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: font Emmentaler-20
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: font feta-alphabet20

My home computer has the Arial font but it's not probably Unicode
compatible. I'll have to copy it there.

Anyway, thanks for the pointer once more.
