Summary0000149: Characters not showing up correctly in browser, shell and other applications
DescriptionIt was reported by @darthgelum, that the double parenthesis characters are not showing up correctly in a Workstation install.

I was testing with both Graphical Server and Workstation installs and both show the same behavior of missing characters (showing placeholder characters).

This was further checked with a fully patched RHEL 9.0 system, which was showing the same behavior.

Also further this was tested both on a hardware system with the proprietory NVIDIA driver as well as in a VMware ESXi environment as a VM.

For comparison I tested this on a fully patched Fedora Workstation installation, which shows the characters just fine.
Steps To Reproduce- Install a Graphical Server or Workstation installation
- Open the browser and visit the page
- You will see many placeholder characters
Additional InformationAs this is a upstream bug, please handle this more as documentation than a Rocky Linux specific bug.
Thank you!

It could be fixed by installing font with full utf8 table support.
For example, julia mono

As mentioned in the RHEL bugreport, this issue got fixed in the npm package.

Browsers are still affected, but I don't really see any moving forward as the mindset looks to be that the websites should provide their own or 3rd party online available fonts.

-> we can close this now

@darthgelum I hope you also have this impression!
