set to invalid. the symbol font is a open font where the symbols have not the same 
codetable like in other fonts, the font in the field is not thorndale or symbol. the field 
only takes the content of the header not the fonts. 
in the field font the symbols are at the same place like the are in thorndale, but the 
symbols of the symbol font are not, the font in the field shows the symbols at is

Comment 6 jack.warchold 2004-06-10 11:45:12 UTC
ok i got it now. the field is not able to display more than one font, because it is 
handled as one character, the first font in the header will be the font for this field, 
because of this the font in the bugdoc has thorndale and the symbol font will be 
ignored. this may be change in later versions, so i declare this issuetype as 
enhancement and reassign it to bh
Comment 7 bettina.haberer 2004-09-03 13:14:50 UTC
Summary: Should be possible to handle several fonts in fields. Currently it is
not possible to have two fonts within one field, e.g. text with the default font
and some symbols of another font.

Comment 9 lohmaier 2004-09-17 01:40:50 UTC
updated summary (original summary: Some special character(symbol) can't display
correctly in header)
(not sure how useful this would be...)
Comment 10 Mathias_Bauer 2007-01-31 15:01:40 UTC
We will not change our fields to support more than one font (or any other
attribute) per field. This is not possible as they are specified to behave like
a uniformly attributes string.
