[Chimera-users] Check Marks in 2D Labels

I'm having trouble inserting a check mark (Unicode page here:
http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/2713/index.htm) into a 2D
label, using the Chimera Daily Build from April 10 2012 on Windows Vista.

I know that you can reference a special character via its Unicode escape
sequence (in this case \u2713). Indeed, when I specify such text from the
command line, or when I copy/paste the check mark into the text box of the
2D Labels window, it displays exactly what I want IN THE 2D LABELS
WINDOW. However, in the main Chimera model display window the check mark is
NOT properly depicted in the label. Instead, I get that empty square you
get whenever a program encounters an unrecognized character.

Other more conventional symbols (such as the Greek letter 'alpha') display

Why would the "2D Labels" window display the check mark properly, while the
main display window does not? Any assistance in this matter is very much
