Dear Peter

Thanks for the list - I've got Arial of course since it has such a huge 
character set so can be useful for displaying symbols on screen - but it's 
so ugly!

Best wishes

In my eyes any picture can look good with Baskerville – thanks to the font!

The following fonts contain the characters your looking for:

Apple Symbols
Arial Unicode

I also looked at http://www.wazu.jp/, but could not find anything.
