Hmmm... perhaps this is something that should be clearer in the 
documentation or Cairo. I assumed that the default Cairo font would be 
the same as the default GTK+ font (which does include these glyphs).

Why the difference in fonts? If Cairo is the rendering agent for GTK+, 
should they be using the same default fonts?
