The original from
had problems when used with OOo on Windows. For example, glyphs would
not show in the "Insert - Special Character" dialog, and the symbols in
the font instructions RTF file (link below) did not show either. There
were fewer problems
with the font under Linux where at least the glyphs showed in the
Special Character dialog.
The font that you can download below is NOT compatible with the
original one above, and it isn't even entirely correct. Use it ONLY if
you're desperate to get the symbols in print or PDF and don't ever
intend to share the original documents.
By fumbling around with the file in fontforge I've managed to get a font file that works. All glyphs appeared to be located from U+2C21 to U+2CFF. I have split the glyphs as follows:
U+2C21 to U+2C7E moved to U+0021 to U+007E
U+2C80 to U+2CFF moved to U+F080 to U+F0FF
U+2C7F is not used (it is the Delete character).
After this, the document http://www.ecko.org.uk/font_instructions.rtf also correctly displays these symbols.
