Hi, I have been enjoying some of the many Unicode characters available in Julia (https://docs.julialang.org/en/stable/manual/unicode-input/), however, found that some of them do not display in the REPL in Windows. Specifically found the issue with some of the \mscr & \mit characters.
Note I have been using vscode as my editor with Julia 0.6.2.
- “\mscrI” displays as ℐ in both the editor and ℐ the REPL.
- “\mscrP” displays as 𝒫 in the editor but as � in the REPL
- “\mitP” displays as 𝑃 in the editor and as � in the REPL
It is curious that some work and others do not (example 1 is fine). These are just some that I came across.
In addition, the characters display fine in the terminal (if you paste from the editor) after installing and applying the DejaVu fonts family, but still fail to show correctly in the Julia REPL. I have also tried the same using the ConEmu console emulator and get the same results (characters display fine in terminal but show up as � in REPL).
The problem seems to be Windows related since I tried example 2 with Ubuntu and the character displayed fine in the REPL.
Is this a known issue? any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.
