Short description of error

Text Object - Edit Mode - Special Characters, the Special characters Circle and Promille doesn't get created when i choose them.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Based on a (as simple as possible) attached .blend file with minimum amount of steps

Create a new scene. Create a text object. Insert special character promille, insert special character circle.

They should create. But here nothing happens then. There is no warning. The Info editor tells me the characters are created. But the characters are simply missing in the text.

The list in the Info editor seems also to have some flaws at displaying what character gets created. Two characters shows an empty string in the brackets. One shows the common square for a not found ascii character.

Maybe this is because of my german Windows 7 64 Bit Home , with american keyboard layout removed.

Example images and a file is attached.

Bug
Bastien Montagne (mont29) triaged this task as Low priority.

Those are missing chars in default Blender font.

Note that pro-millage is easy to get from any most main fonts (dejavu, gentium, etc.), circle char seems much less common…

Anyway, will see if I find some time to add those in our embedded font, would not consider this any high priority though.
